Comment (by duncan):

 I agree with Ross that a darcs changelog is far too much information. Much
 more that you could reasonably squeeze into an RSS feed entry for a new

 A format for changelogs is reasonable, or if we can work out a convention
 such as showing the difference between the current and previous changelog

 Personally I think the ideal thing would be a combination of a changelog
 written by the package author and an automatic API diff tool. The
 automatic API diff tool provides basic info and a human authored changelog
 can optionally provide helpful details / motivation / comments.
