Is there some sort of commit hook that can do this automatically? I have used CVS where a commit script would automatically create entries in a changelog file. None of the projects I work on now have a change log file that developers need to update. As you've found, it doesn't work for concurrent development, and besides, that's what the versioning system is for. Of course Vanilla has a history of thowing away the version history every so often, so all those darcs comments are just going to get lost.
