Subject: Changes file does not provide dates
... which makes it really hard to make the decision of how far back you want to set your dependency on (since this decision is usually based on a mix of the changes and the age).

I could have an argument about how the date shouldn't be an issue - but I'll avoid that pointless digression :-) Can see no harm. Will sort for next release. Cheers, Adrian

Obviously it shouldn't :) Trouble is that sometimes a lot of change happens in a short period of time, and it takes a lot of time for those changes to migrate down into the testing versions of various linux/etc distributions, and then onwards into production releases. If the version you pick to depend on is 2+ years old, it's pretty certain that it is available in the production release of all distros (assuming it's packaged at all). Adam K

I consulted backpan since it appears to have accurate dates. I've added them to the Changes file and committed to github. Should be available in next release. Cheers, Ovid
