yurtesenI have a question about package changelogs is here somebody who can answer it? my question is about the syntax difference betwee Debian and Ubuntu changelogs in imported packages.22:11
tumbleweedthe syntax is the same22:12
yurtesenPlease see the 8th message in this question for the difference: https://answers.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/tomcat9/+question/70093422:12
yurtesenBut also simply you can open a changelog: http://changelogs.ubuntu.com/changelogs/pool/universe/t/tomcat9/tomcat9_9.0.31-1ubuntu0.1/changelog and see the last 2 entries. The last one is an Ubuntu update after Debian import freeze. The 2nd last one is imported from Debian.22:14
tumbleweedthese are different people doing the same work22:16
tumbleweedessentially duplicated work22:16
tumbleweedthey formatted their changelogs differently22:16
yurtesenYes, but Ubuntu SecurityTeam wiki at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/SecurityTeam/UpdatePreparation#Update_the_packaging  in section 3 has a template.22:19
yurtesenThe person who made the update to Ubuntu package apparently used that template.22:19
yurtesenMy question is, is it a requirement to use that template? or can the changelog be inspired to be more like the original Debian changelog entries?22:19
yurtesenI am wondering this because I recently created a debdiff. It was importing some security patches from Debian. But I had to re-write the changelog entries to fit the Ubuntu template. It was quite time consuming. It would be nice to know if the "template" at wiki is just some example, or a hard rule to follow?22:27
tumbleweedthat's a question for the security team22:57
tumbleweedbut I'd assume that as long as you include all of the information that the ubuntu template has in it, and it's clear and understandable, that that would be acceptable22:57
