Hi,

The thread on the devlist starting with this posting..
   http://www.contactor.se/~dast/svn/archive-2004-01/0426.shtml
..begs for more time from the CHANGES file are visible in trunk until its
content are frozen (when copied to the release branch).
That message camed up because a important change in the Perl bindings did
not appear in the file (from #svn last Tuesday)

People have various opinions of the contents of this file so I have some
suggestions/alternatives on how to avoid this in the future:

*The committer of a change updates the CANGES file by placeing
 it as a item on the right place when doing the final commit
 for an issue or task. This is good and bad. The committer must
 have a global vue of what to include in the file. On the other
 hand, it saves work for the RM.

*The RM (or another person who can write to the CHANGES file) adds
 items there when he/she/it :-) have time during the time between
 the releases. This may have issues because the items added first
 may not be important in the big picture when the release time
 comes.

*We (usually the RM) tries to do the CHANGES file ASAP on release
 day (or the evening/day before, depending on time, timezones etc)
 and then announce on the dev list that the file are changed.
 I like this alternative best best because then the committers,
 observers, wannabies and other interested persons can speak up.

Comments? I go for the last alternative.

Jostein
