expressive changesets

Posted by maning on 31 July 2009 in English (English)

Lately, I've gotten bored with my changeset comments. The usual comments like "add new POI at road X" or "edit X footway" doesn't tell much about how I feel during editing sessions. In order to spice them up, I'm adding more expressive comments on my changesets.

Some are here:
1. A requested edit of my daughter

2. A mouth watering POI edit

3. A frustrated edit

I suppose in theory there's not so much point saying exactly what you're changing in your changeset comments, since that information is kind of in the changeset itself. Better to give the "why" rather than the "what"

write a story, one word at a time, in your changeset history ;)

Stories to your changesets make it a lot more interesting.
