+1 with the following caveats.

1. The file should be compatible with maven 2 and should cause it to be 
included in the project reports. As of yet, I don't see the changes 
plugin listed but the site plugin says that the files in the xdoc 
directory are for the most part the same as in maven 1. So I would 
assume changes.xml would have the same format as maven 1 which is 
slightly different than status.xml.
2. It seems a little wierd to have the developer's initials on status 
items without that being defined anywhere in the file. changes.xml is 
similar to status.xml in that each action has a dev attribute with the 
developer's id which refers back to an author element to identify the 
developer making the change. Furthermore, I think it is appropriate for 
developers who make changes on a block to identify themselves.
