I know what the contents of doc/pkg-CHANGES looks like -- thats why I
suggested its commits could be done programmatically.
But the log messages go to many people, more I suspect than are
interested in the nitty-gritty details of pkgsrc-current. Either they
should be made useful as I've described, or they should be moved to
pkgsrc-changes so their lack of usefullness doesn't annoy and frustrate
