Friend to friend: When you make a release please take a few minutes to make a human-readable changelog of what has changed since the last release?
Your commit-messages are not a changelog.
Let me re-iterate:
Your commit-messages are _not_ a changelog.
A changelog allows me to follow what you were thinking between releases.
A commit log shows me your keystrokes between releases.
I need to know what you were thinking.

I've seen a bunch of comics by her circulating here on Mastodon, like the one about grep in the picture, so a link to her website is due 😀
and here a link to support her by buying some zines if you are interested https://gumroad.com/b0rk
