Thanks to all of you who replied with ideas and information. It is
much appreciated. I am still debating. But there is no one right
answer. I can definitely see where different projects will have
different needs and choose one or the other.

Thanks for that. I learned a couple of new features of the svn log
command by reading that. (And I have not seen 'dc' used in a script
in many years. :-)

I looked at that and while it seems a reasonable directory it did not
work very well for me. It seems to want RCS/CVS style log messages
because it tries to add filenames to the changelog. But a subversion
HACKING file recommended style ends up with duplicated output. But it
is a place to start if I were building my own log to changelog script.
