We'll try to start providing more meaningful commit messages, but  
since I've relied on the CHANGES file long before we moved to a VCS,  
the muscle memory is there.

Here's what you can do though.  Most of the time we make changes we  
also update the CHANGES file.  So most new revisions have a revised  
CHANGES file.  For example, go here:


I just made these tweaks.  If you click on "diff" next to the CHANGES  
file, you'll go here:


Scroll to the bottom and you'll see text describing the change that  
was made.  Hope that's sufficient.
