|Subject:||Problem with the way the Changes file is done now|
The Changes file now only shows the most recent change, and links to a live subversion repository for the rest. I'm trying to find out when blessed was introduced, to add a dependency on that version and no earlier. This bug has two parts. Firstly, the subversion repository is down...returns Error running this command: /usr/bin/svnlook youngest '/home/svnroot/repos/Scalar-List-Utils' svn: Berkeley DB error while opening environment for filesystem /home/svnroot/repos/Scalar-List-Utils/db: Permission denied The second part of this bug is that I think that making part of the distribution information reliant on a external service is a bad idea. In general it leaves it vunerable to going out of date, or going down in this case. At the very least, the inclusion of only the very most recent change means that we can't examine back more than what is current. I'd advise either putting the changes back in (how big can they be) or at least keeping the last 5 or 10 versions in the file.
