Resolve WDQS changelog situation
Closed, ResolvedPublic1 Estimated Story Points

Description

As a developer I want to know the source of truth of WDQS changelog so that I can watch for significant changes.

We have currently a changelog in the rdf repo (https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/plugins/gitiles/wikidata/query/rdf/+/refs/heads/master/docs/ChangeLog) but wasn't updated in years. Options I see:

  1. Restart the maintenance
  2. Remove the changelog and point to git log as a source of change information
  3. Autogenerate the file based on git log

AC:

  • Developers are aware of the way to list changes in WDQS

After team discussion: let's just drop the changelog file. Git history is there, and that's how we manage most of our projects.
