I'm still having trouble understanding what you mean. The ChangeLog
entries won't change, of course. I can't imagine that anybody looks
at the cvs log of a ChangeLog file, since it would be rather boring.
CVS doesn't support changesets in any meaningful way, so moving the
information won't make it any harder to identify a patch which crosses
Can you give a specific example of what you mean?
