There is no changelog files, the best you have at this level is svn
log messages.  (Perhaps Jay should post such changes when he's doing
them too.)  In this case, I suspect that the log messages would not be
useful since Jay is fond of single-word commit messages.

Minor version bumps happen mostly when there are change in the core.
(In theory, we decided that they could also happen on important-enough
changes in any subsystem, but I don't think that anyone has ever asked
for a version bump for such reasons so far.)  They are therefore as
arbitrary as revision numbers, and you can simply use subversion with
either that, or with a date.
