-# ChangeLog for <CATEGORY>/<PACKAGE_NAME>

- 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 Git 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 file 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 Git, 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.
