I was thinking that one possible way to do this, could be that you 
compile a list, based on the cross-correlation between the CVS logs (too 
granular) and the changes.xml file (eventually still too granular) and 
then we filter it out here.

The reason for this is that, honestly, I don't remember *when* something 
was added :-) so indicating a period of time is rather hard for us to 
correlate with specific features (several blocks were added, for 
example, but don't remember which ones).

CVS/SVN logs contain all that information, it's just a matter of 
filtering it out. A way to do this would be to remove all the logs that 
resulted in a few lines of code of change.

Ah, note that if you use "svn log -v --xml" you get an xml format of the 
logs and you can use cocoon to filter that out ;-)

Seriously, I think asking for a list of features correlated with time 
yields a "bah, can't remember" answer, while a list of things to look at 
might allow us to say "oh yeah, that one".
