Not all that useful as a changelog. I have no idea what I told you as 
that was probably 100s of reviews ago. When writing changelogs for patch 
revisions, you need to describe what changed. And it's best to put that 
into the relevant patch. IOW, I want to know what I said to change so I 
know what I need to look at again in particular.

And now that I've found v11, 'suggestions from Rob' isn't really 
accurate as you fixed errors reported by running the tools.
