Subject [jira] [Commented] (ZOOKEEPER-2672) Remove CHANGE.txt
Date Tue, 07 Feb 2017 05:45:42 GMT

Rakesh R commented on ZOOKEEPER-2672:
-------------------------------------

bq. Rakesh R and Michael Han, Even though I am leaning towards removing the file too, I think
at least one voting round on dev@ or user@ before removing CHANGE.txt would be nice.
[~eribeiro], I have sent couple of mails about this. Please refer [zk user mailing list discussion
thread|http://zookeeper-user.578899.n2.nabble.com/Re-CHANGES-txt-td7582909.html]

I believe, this jira needs to be concluded(to avoid confusions - after the migration to git
CHANGE.txt is not the source of truth) before cutting 3.4.10 release. I'm planning to remove
CHANGE.txt file in 2 days time frame, 8 February 2017, 6:00 PM (PST), if there is no objection.
Thanks!

> The CHANGE.txt is already not the source of truth of what's changed after we migrating
to git - most of the git commits in recent couple of months don't update CHANGE.txt. The option
of updating CHANGE.txt during commit flow automatically is none trivial, and do that manually
is cumbersome and error prone.
> The consensus is we would rely on source control revision logs instead of CHANGE.txt
moving forward; see https://www.mail-archive.com/dev@zookeeper.apache.org/msg37108.html for
more details.
