There are thousands of different changelogs (if any) out there, with dozens of different names. It’s almost impossible to fetch and parse them automatically… Gemnasium is using Vandamme to keep each changelog specificities (changelog location, version format, file format).
We really believe in changelogs. Following changes in dependencies is a hard task, and almost impossible by reading commits only.
The open-source world would be so much nicer with full, readable and comprehensive changelogs. As a solution to this problem, we propose a simple set of rules and requirements to follow in order to have a Standard Changelog. Please see the specs here:
