Friend to friend: When you make a release please take a few minutes to make a human-readable changelog of what has changed since the last release?

Your commit-messages are not a changelog.

Let me re-iterate:

Your commit-messages are _not_ a changelog.

A changelog allows me to follow what you were thinking between releases.

A commit log shows me your keystrokes between releases.

I need to know what you were thinking.

Thank you.


@Canageek Ugh, you're right; it's even worse than a git commit log.

@craigmaloney What is your opinion on snarking at other software in your changelogs? (Search for OLEX2. Also yes, this software is 40 years old and still updating)
