==== Description: ====
VCS2ChangeLog reads log output of a VCS (e.g. git, mercurial, etc.) and
generate a ChangeLog that resembles the GNU ChangeLog format.  This allows GNU
projects to automatically generate a ChangeLog from the log of the VCS
repository it is stored in and hence not have to maintain it in tree.  This is
done by interpreting the VCS log and then parsing the old and new files to get
IR trees that can be compared for changes.

The project currently consists of a single script written in Python that
generates a ChangeLog-like output from a git log and is specifically written
for glibc.  Over time however this script will be expanded to understand and
parse multiple file types (C/C++, python, perl, GNU make, etc.) and also
target VCS software other than git, based on requirements of the GNU project.

==== Other Software Required: ====
- python, Python Software Foundation License version 2,

- git, GPLv2,

==== Tarball URL: ====
