+*<PACKAGE_NAME>-<PACKAGE_VERSION>-<PACKAGE_RELEASE> (DD MMM YYYY)
+
+ DD MMM YYYY; YOUR_NAME <YOUR_EMAIL> changed_file1, changed_file2 :
+ Initial import. Ebuild submitted by submitter_name <submitter_email>.
+ Note that the "changed_file" listing is optional if you are simply bumping
+ the rev of the ebuild and are only making changes to the .ebuild file
+ itself. Also note that we now have a single unified paragraph rather than
+ having the first line separated from the rest by a newline. Everything
+ should be in one block like this. (note by drobbins, 16 Jul 2002)
+
+ DD MMM YYYY; YOUR_NAME <YOUR_EMAIL> changed_file1, changed_file2: this is
+ an earlier ChangeLog entry.
+
+-- Explanation of ChangeLog format:
+
+ ***************************************************************************
+ THIS IS IMPORTANT: The ChangeLog format is a *chronological* account of all
+ changes made to a set of ebuilds. That means that the most recent ChangeLog
+ entry *always* goes at the top of the file. More explanation below.
+ ***************************************************************************
+
+ ***************************************************************************
+ ANOTHER IMPORTANT NOTE: There are some ChangeLogs that don't follow this
+ format and organize all changes under the "correct" "*" entry. This is not
+ correct. However, rather than making a concerted effort to fix these
+ ChangeLogs, we should spend our energy defining a comprehensive and strict
+ XML-based ChangeLog format which we then migrate to. But for any entries to
+ any ChangeLog that *you* make, please make sure to always add entries to the
+ top of the file like a good boy/girl. Even do this if it's clear that you're
+ adding an entry to a b0rked ChangeLog.
+ ***************************************************************************
+
+ This changelog is targeted to users. This means that the comments should be
+ well explained and written in clean English.
+
+ Every new version or revision of the package should be marked by a '*'
+ separator line as above to indicate where in the chronology it was first
+ added to our CVS tree. Any changes since the last revision, really _any
+ changes at all_ have to be added to the top of the file, underneath the
+ initial copyright and cvs header comments, in exactly the same format as this
+ comment. If you are modifying older ebuilds, simply note them as changed
+ files and add your entry to the top of the ChangeLog. Resist the temptation
+ to "organize" your ChangeLog entries by placing them under the "correct" "*"
+ entries -- this isn't the purpose of the "*" entries.
+
+ This means that you start with header line that has the following format,
+ indented two spaces:
+
+ DD MMM YYYY; your_name <your_email> changed_file1, changed_file2: Your
+ explanation should follow. It should be indented and wrapped at a line width
+ of 80 characters. The changed_files can be omitted if they are obvious; for
+ example, if you are only modifying the .ebuild file and committing a new rev
+ of a package. Any details about what exactly changed in the code should be
+ added as a message when the changes are committed to cvs, not in this file.
+
+-- A word regarding credit:
+
+ Please add credit information ("ebuild submitted by ...", "patch submitted
+ by ...") to the ChangeLog. Do not add this information to the ebuilds
+ themselves.
+
+ And remember: Give credit where credit is due. We're all doing this for
+ free, so the best we can hope (and expect!) to receive is credit.
