7 vapier 1.9 DD MMM YYYY; YOUR_NAME <YOUR_EMAIL> changed_file1, changed_file2 :
8     Initial import. Ebuild submitted by submitter_name <submitter_email>.
9     Note that the "changed_file" listing is optional if you are simply bumping
10     the rev of the ebuild and are only making changes to the .ebuild file
11     itself. Also note that we now have a single unified paragraph rather than
12     having the first line separated from the rest by a newline. Everything
13     should be in one block like this. (note by drobbins, 16 Jul 2002)

15 drobbins 1.8 DD MMM YYYY; YOUR_NAME <YOUR_EMAIL> changed_file1, changed_file2: this is
16     an earlier ChangeLog enty.

18     -- Explanation of ChangeLog format:
19 blizzy 1.5
20     This changelog is targetted to users. This means that the comments should be
21     well explained and written in clean English.
22 drobbins 1.3
23     Every new version or revision of the package should be marked by a '*'
24     seperator line as above. Changes since the last revision have to be added to
25     the top of the file, underneath the initial copyright and cvs header
26 gbevin 1.2 comments, in exactly the same format as this comment.
27 gbevin 1.1
28 drobbins 1.3 This means that you start with header line that has the following format,
29     indented two spaces:
30 gbevin 1.1
31 drobbins 1.3 DD MMM YYYY; your_name <your_email> changed_file1, changed_file2: Your
32     explanation should follow. It should be indented and wrapped at a line width
33     of 80 characters. The changed_files can be omitted if they are obvious; for
34     example, if you are only modifying the .ebuild file and committing a new rev
35     of a package. Any details about what exactly changed in the code should be
36     added as a message when the changes are committed to cvs, not in this file.
37 blizzy 1.7
38     -- A word regarding credit:
39    
40     Please add credit information ("ebuild submitted by ...", "patch submitted
41     by ...") to the ChangeLog. Do not add this information to the ebuilds
42     themselves.
43    
44     And remember: Give credit where credit is due. We're all doing this for
45     free, so the best we can hope (and expect!) to receive is credit.
