they bloat the packages as well... which means they bloat the install
media and bloat the download times over the network.
I'm hard pressed to think of a real-world situation where 2 year old
package changelog notations in the packages are needed. Shouldn't
access to the cvs server suffice for deep-diving into package
Aren't changelogs compressed yet ?
I'm very surprised simple flat text data can make such a significant
difference these days (the yum problem OTOH is real but can't yum
truncat the changelogs it exports all by itself ?)
