Again we're repeating the discussion...
Mandriva's mechanism is built to ignore commits that start with
SILENT: . So if you do 'git commit -m "SILENT: fix build"' , it won't
show up in the RPM changelog.
All this is in the archives. Several times. It's not helping anyone to
keep floating the idea, if someone wants it to happen they should
probably actually write some code.
