Why is there no ChangeLog for the gentoo-sources? I can understand why there aren't any for the others, but it would help to find out what exactly was changed specifically for the gentoo-sources...

I believe you can look in the ebuild for changes.

Can't you just do a "diff gentoo-sources blah blah" And see what was added to the new gentoo-sources?

Personally I don't much look at the changelog. I'm the sort that wants the latest and greatest software.
