Note: This blog entry will to go away soon. Another version is in the works.

Note also that having the entire files rather than just a code snippet like a patch makes it easy see as much context as you need in order to recreate a change log by looking at ONLY the files that were changed from one build to another.

KDE's 'kompare' is an excellent utility for viewing changes.
