I have written a small (and somewhat naive) tool that takes the CVS loginfo
and sticks it into an MySQL [1] database so that it is easier to find and
maintain.

I then use www-sql [2] to make a Web enabled query interface. Both the Web
interface and the db management could be improved but it gives long needed
automatically generated release notes:

	http://db.w3.org/Library/

The source code is in CVS as

	libwww/Library/cvs2sql/

You need to do a "cvs update -d" in order to see the new directory.

You can also find the source as

	http://www.w3.org/Library/cvs2sql/cvs2sql.c

The code uses the libwww MySQL helper API [3] and is only compiled if you
compile libwww with support for mysql [4]

Have fun - and feel more than welcome to improve it! 

Henrik
