Are ther changelogs we can look at for troubleshooting?

Some of us are running into things that used to work but stopped working. Case in point: https://github.com/clearlinux/distribution/issues/784

I ran into this yesterday and thought it was a kernel module problem. Are there changelogs we can look at if we want to troubleshoot issues like this ourselves?

There are release notes. But frankly they are painful to obtain at present.

  1. Navigate to the download location for the appropriate release eg https://cdn.download.clearlinux.org/releases/29560/clear/
  2. Locate and download relevant RELEASENOTES files

Additionally, https://github.com/clearlinux-pkgs hosts the autospec repositories and SRPMS for the software packages in Clear Linux which is helpful to see what changed inside a particular package.

I am pretty sure about a year ago the webserver config on download.c.o just let you read the RELEASENOTES file in your browser without having to download it. It’s a small issue that would really make day-to-day keeping track of changes much nicer!

Or as an alternative perhaps a category on here with an email ingest for releasenotes that is set to not bump on the front page, that would allow us to effectively subscribe to a changelog feed without noising up the rest of the forum.
