This sort of daily documenting is a burden for the developers and will take time away from real development. The nightlies are supposed to be for the cutting edge folk. It’s a shame that 1.5 is soo good that there are soo many people running them. It’s really not supposed to be that way!
Maybe some sort of public cvs label sniffer would work best.
I understand that effect that daily documentation would have on the develpment cycle. However, a listing of files that have changed isn’t what I would consider useful. Even just a once a week brief summary of the main changes would be highly appreciated. Trying to figure out why my theme breaks after I do an upgrade is a pain in the arse.
