RFE: Add global macro to limit changelog in binary packages

Reported by: FlorianFesti Assigned to: jnovy Priority: minor Milestone: rpm-4.8.0 Component: rpm Version: RPM Development Keywords: Cc:


To save space in the packages and the rpmdb a macro could limit the changelog in binary packages. That way ancient log entries could still be looked up in the spec file. Limit could be done by #entries or by time or both.

The new changelog trimming feature is now implemented upstream. The current implementation allows changelog trimming based on changelog entry date. It is specified via _changelog_trimtime macro:

# The Unix time of the latest kept changelog entry in binary packages.
# Any older entry is not packaged in binary packages.
