Subject: Why it is not possible to allow changelogs with different filenames?

subj. i.e. CHANGES and ChangeLog and Changelog several words in defense of "ChangeLog": 1) CPAN and MetaCPAN process it well. example: http://search.cpan.org/~vsespb/App-MtAws-0.973/ https://metacpan.org/module/App::MtAws https://metacpan.org/changes/distribution/App-MtAws 2) Wiki Article exists for ChangeLog, not for changes: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Changelog 3) CPAN distributions are not necessary related to Perl and made for Perl users, App:: namespace introduce software targeting for non-programmers also, non necessary distributed over CPAN-only. So CPAN statistics for use of Changes vs CHANGES vs ChangeLog not necessary relevant. Debian, for example, prefers "debian/changelog" file related RT#67527

I'm not the author of the specification. And I also admit that I disagree on some But the point of a specification is to try to unify things. And following the Changes specification is not mandatory to make your CPAN module work. So you are free to not follow the spec. -- Olivier Mengué - http://perlresume.org/DOLMEN
