I use the Tx client and a small local VCS of mine to view these.

  $ hg init
  $ tx init
  $ tx set --auto-remote <Fedora-Release-URL>
  $ tx pull
  $ hg commit -a -m 'snapshot!'
  ### Every time changes happen which I want to review:
  $ tx pull
  $ hg commit -A -m 'snapshot!'
  $ hg log -r tip --patch

At some point Tx should be able to say what has changed when a file is pushed
or changed in Lotte, eg:

  <Project>:<Resource>: User <John> has updated the <German> translation:
                        152 words translated, 5 new suggestions.

Can you please open a ticket using the Feedback button on what exactly doesn't
happen that it should?

Thanks for the feedback!
