[arch-dev-public] ChangeLogs

Maybe only I missed it: I just found that all my packages that used to
pickup the "ChangeLog" file don't show anything in pacman -Qc!


It seems I missed the note in the NEWS file of pacmans 3.4.0 release.
Just a heads up. 

Is it worth the work to update the changelog at all? Any plans on
integrating a Changelog to the packages website? Do we need some
convention how to order and format the file?

[andyrtr at workstation64 tmp]$ find /var/lib/pacman/ | grep changelog |
wc -l 48

Not many packages seem to use that feature.
