Description Tom Tromey 2005-09-22 12:46:10 EDT
I tried making a changelog entry just now and it inserted
the text into the wrong place.

In particular the top of the changelog entry before my change
looked like:

2005-09-22  Mark Wielaard  <mark@klomp.org>

And when I made my change it did not make a new header but
instead inserted the particular change entry into the middle
of this, yielding:

2005-09-22  Mark Wielaard  <mark@klomp.org   * java/net/ServerSocket.java
(accept): >

I've seen this before; it only seems to occur when there is
already an entry in the changelog (further down in the file)
with my name and the current date.

FYI -- I checked in a fix for this to the changelog plugin cvs.
I haven't looked into doing a new release.
Comment 2 Phil Muldoon 2006-03-13 10:05:44 EST
Excellent, thanks Tom. I'm undertaking a complete rewrite of the GNU formatter
(it's slow work, alas). But I will look into cutting an update site release with
your fix ASAP.
