Subject Re: use of CHANGES files for research
Date Thu, 02 Mar 2000 23:12:54 GMT
I'm thinking the CVS logs might be better, because trying to
quantify things is a bit more exact that way. The size of an
entry in CHANGES has very little correlation with the
complexity or usefulness of the actual code. But the CHANGES
file certainly gives some useful glimpses I think.
