Precisely.  The changes file is not for developers, not for egos, it exists
entirely for the benefit of end users, who don't know the different between
one trunk pre-apr-1.4.0 and released apr-1.4.0.

Anyone following trunk is following *svn commits*.  The egoboo derives from
svn commits.  Only the necessary information to tell consumers (end users)
"what changed?!?" belongs in CHANGES.

Rather; you must provide a technical rational for your veto, and reading the
post which Jeff has replied to, it is groundless.

Every point you raised would have applied to changes made after 1.4.0 had been
released, if applied to the code prior to 1.4.1.  All of the points were very
salient.  And they were apropos of nothing; APR 1.4.x does not exist until this
group releases it, and we have not.
