Thanks, Andy, and thanks, too, Christophe, I've not known your tool up to now. It shows that there is more steady maintenance than I thought it is . . . so thanks to all helpers and elves keeping SOTA up to date (resp. updated, hi).
Since SOTA is not our daily business, our programmer's resources should be used wisely. They should be used primarily for direct benefit to the chasers and activators and a happy management team – and not for an administrative summit, hi. But anyhow, I consider the interest in update transparency is increasing, thinking i.e. of the mega update for Italy with local patriotic pros for this or cons against that summit or the frequent P150/100 topic. A public change log could help by delivering neutral background info – even considering the very recent discussion about SOTA participants not using the resources, not reading the FAQ or not retrieving the facts from such a possible future update tool. I've not lived many update discussions so far since participating here actively for only half a year, but I think such topics arise faster this type of emotions that are harmful to the SOTA core and a harmonic relationship between the management team and the association managements.
The availability of such a list or tool could be even seen as a marketing instrument. What are the updates for region XY? Oh, a new summit – or a funny summit name not been on my radar so far . . . let me discover and activating them on a long weekend next month! Or look at the activities of our fellows tagging now the "not yet activated" summits in Italy, hi. Updates are a further view on our beloved summits beside the more traditional criteria.
