Re: ChangeLog info missing ?

Hi Michael,

sorry for not noticing challog 2009. : (

but I am confused with outer Changelog because, if you see patch mentioned in 
below mail, which if checked in, will go to  '/Changelog' in the root directory 


I find the entry

2009-08-19  Ralf Wildenhues  <>

but, the patch entry missing, looks like the patch is not applied 
so in conclusion, appropriately correcting my understanding, each directory has 
changelog and changelog file is only applicable to be modified if developer has 
modified contents of that directory. 

Outer Changelog is never affected.
right ?

2) Ok, I think I need to go thorugh arm-tdep.c, as I saw there has been lots of 
changes done in 2010, but was not sure exactly for what, as there are some huge 
changes, If I have any questions after going through, I will try to post them.

Hello Oza,

Your changelog entry did not get left out.  You can find it in
src/gdb/ChangeLog-2009.  You may not have realized that we start
a new ChangeLog file at the beginning of each year.
