I sketched out a quick prototype of a Kernel ChangeLog viewer:
Choose the kernel on the left, select the changelog summary at the top and the text is shown in the bottom pane.
I spend a fair amount of time reading kernel changelogs and something like this (but with nice filtering and searching) would be useful. The only major problems I see are :
- "Recent" changelog entries have one format, older ones have another.
- You need to download a lot of changelog files locally for it to be useful.
Anyway if you follow kernels you might like the idea, if not the implementation. I look forward to seeing your improved version. (Doesn't free software rock? ;)
