I guess you are agreeing with me, Karl (but I'm not too sure ;-)).

But just because it is helpful (IMO) to provide users such info locally and via
HTTP, that does not mean that we should not also provide vc access to such info.

And it does not say anything about where we "store" the info for Emacs Dev.  The
info can be available in more than one location, by copy and by pointer.  But
(IMO) users should obtain a copy along with the Emacs source code - that was my

Vc systems are handy for creating, accessing, and storing change messages - no
question about it.  All I'm asking is that the info thus recorded continue to be
available also to users locally (and if possible via http), as part of the
delivered Emacs sources.
