profiles/ChangeLog is too large
 
The profiles/ChangeLog file has grown to more than 700 kbytes. Would
it make sense to remove ancient (say, pre-2010) entries from it?

Maybe it would also help if we added separate ChangeLog files for each
subdirectory? Some subdirectories already have such a file, but it
looks to me like they've been added more or less at random.

pre-2010 looks a bit dangerous cause we do have quite a few entries in
package.mask dating back in 2009. Therefore, I'd say, pre-2009 should be
good enough.

Will the ChangeLog file be needed at all for the eventual git
migration, or will it just get the history from CVS?

If it's not needed for that, I have a hard time finding a reason
really old entries would be needed.

Is that file actually useful at all? I don't remember ever looking into
it. I guess it's even less useful for users, and devs can lookup CVS
logs if they actually need something.

Perhaps you can generalise the discussion into when you do consider a
changelog entry to (still) be relevant?
I guess figuring out something here is useful both now as well as in the
future.
