The raw changelog.

For the given version range, it prepares a summary for every version increment. Every summary point consists of the following:

  • altered file list
  • the comment.

Although, the comment is not taken from SVM log :) The comment is based on diffs between the latter and the former version.

Diff on sap file - possible entries:

  • the line has been added: -> ADDED <line>
  • the line has been removed ->REMOVED <line>
  • the line has been changed -> CHANGED <line>
  • the binary has been changed -> CHANGED BINARY

There is an issue when the line order has changed, but this may be managed on another level.

The tool does not exist yet.

The STIL.txt-like file

For every SAP file in a given range of version numbers (usually the whole range), the

  • sap file name
  • comment field
  • eventually other fields

are taken to the summary.

The COMMENT field value should not be limited to let's say 256 chars. The reasonable limit should be IMO about 16 kB or so. It cannot contain an "FF FF" sequence.
