Hmm, I'm not so sure about this one ...
I'm concerned that once we go down this path we're stuck with maven to
generate change reports. The idea of the text file was just a way to allow
people to see what the key changes were in each release without having to
trawl through subversion. If you could re-generate the changes.txt from
within the ant build I'd be fine with it, but that sounds like a bit of work
I don't want to be a roadblock to improving things, but I don't want to
impose additional overhead on those who build osmosis themselves.
I guess if the whole build switched over to maven this wouldn't be an issue
but I'm not sure I'm ready for that :-) I promise to test out your maven
build one of these days ...
