Dear Signal #community #free software #programming #vcs
Please provide a useful changelog in your signal-desktop Debian package.
The previous package broke the application, today
apt(8) fetched a new package, and the complete changelog reads:
signal-desktop (1.27.2) whatever; urgency=medium * Package created with FPM. -- Open Whisper Systems <email@example.com> Fri, 06 Sep 2019 15:36:44 -0700
That is useless. The changelog should provide, at minimum, a summary of the changes between this version and the previous one.
To avoid spam many websites make you fill out a CAPTCHA, or log in via an account at a corporation such as Twitter, Facebook, Google or even Microsoft GitHub.
I have chosen to use a more old school method of spam prevention.
