Seconded. We try to keep the Changes files to containing only information 
about changes that help users decide whether they need to upgrade to that 
newer version or not. If we log everything, the file will become useless. We 
could just run cvs2lg to autogenerated a list of all cvs changes.

There is another issue with acknowledging the contributions, but it's probably 
not the reason to log those contributions in Changes. Perhaps we need to start 
CONTRIBUTORS and simply list the names of contributors there. We do change 
docs all the time, and trying to track those changes is not simple and 
certainly doesn't belong to the current Changes. Suggestions on how to improve 
that are certainly welcome.

BTW, I did acknowledge that I've committed your patch, David, in reply to your 
email with the patch.
