Starting with GRAMPS 3.0.0, we no longer have a ChangeLog file.

Instead, the list of changes is generated automatically using the standard svn2cl script.

Note that svn2cl is not included in the base installation of subversion. With a Debian-based distro such as Ubuntu, you can get svn2cl as follows:

sudo apt-get install subversion-tools

There typically are two ChangeLog files needed for releases; one in the main directory, and one in the po directory. You can generate these files with the following commands:

cd gramps30
svn2cl --reparagraph --include-rev --authors=src/data/authors.xml
cd po
svn2cl --reparagraph --include-rev --authors=../src/data/authors.xml
