Any Need For The CHANGES File?
 
This is just me being nit-picky, but is there any reason that the CHANGES file still exists in the root Moodle directory? Moodle Docs & CVS do a great job of documenting changes from release to release. The file doesn't seem to have been updated for a few years now.

Thanks,
Bryce

I second that and vote for the removing of that useless file from all current Moodle distributions.

I was about to say my +1 for that, but i've verified, and i only find the CHANGES file in an old Moodle 1.5 distribution, and not in the others i have on my server (1.6.x+, 1.7.x+, 1.8.x+, 1.9 dev) wink

There is a README.txt file in all distributions, but i think this one must stay smile

Hmm. I think it's still there. Take a look at the CVS trunk.

I can't help with CVS (i don't use it), but with the moodle-latest-xx.tgz, the CHANGES file isn't there...

... but it is in a clean CVS download of HEAD.
It should not be there.

So.. could Martin or anyone remove it? I have to say that I second to remove the CHANGES from the CVS trunk, however, I did find the following link useful (but it is not sync with the CHANGES in CVS, although they share the same filename):

http://download.moodle.org/stable18/CHANGES

This link could always give me a quick idea what recent changes were committed into the core. Maybe the key is to make the CHANGES file sync with that file (link)?

Yes, this one is generated daily. The one in CVS is not updated anymore - I've removed it now. smile
