why doesn't libsurefire-java have a changelog.gz ?

Dear all,

Thank you for maintaining surefire reports.

Please CC me if answering as I'm not subscribed to the list.

I have been trying out an app. which uses slightly older version of
surefire-java, 2.20.1 to be exact.

I tried going to apache site http://maven.apache.org/surefire/

and even in the source tarballs there isn't a changelog :(

the latest being libsurefire 2.22.0 .

I did look at /usr/share/doc/libsurefire-java$ ls
changelog.Debian.gz  copyright

and even here we just have the downstream changelog and not the upstream one.

the jira changelog isn't public :(


although if one wanted to people could perhaps put all the changes in
the log from the github mirror
https://github.com/apache/maven-surefire/commits/master and put it in
the package.

Would be helpful for sure to know what has changed underneath .
Currently it is a mystery unless one has the time and the patience to
read through all the commit messages.

I am open to filing a wishlist bug against libsurefire-java , getting
the surefire repo. and getting the git log > surefire-git.log which
will be a crude log if somebody has the time and patience to cherry
pick and share the important features, bug-fixes in the new releases.

It is also interesting to see the recent commits about openjdk11 support.

Thoughts ?
