Work lacks an identity, a handle. Everytime I feel like I move towards a definite goal, it shifts.



tk: In my way of thinking, the changelog is a list of things that you [or somebody else] has done. Going though and changing history [for lack of a better way to express it] just doesnt seem ``right'' to me. I understand your comment that it should be fine to only change the form - I'm not so mad about it to advocate against changing a changelog from html->text [for example].. but [imo] the text of a changelog shouldn't be altered - if you started altering the previous changelogs, then they can loose, or gain new, meanings.. this is definatly not good, especially where you have a document that is published [loosely speaking] both before and after the changes.
Of course, I may just be speaking straight from my rear orifice. Feel free to discard anything much of what I say.
