When I submitted the scripts used to prepare the nightly builds to be  
included in the Subversion repository, I rewrote them from Python to  
Perl.  As part of this process I removed a few pieces of  
functionality that weren't, in my opinion, providing useful  
functionality.  The per-build change notes were one thing to go.  My  
rationale for this was that the information is available elsewhere in  
a more useful form.  Change logs on a per-revision basis are  
available at <http://cia.webkit.org/>, while more detailed  
information on changes can be found at <http://trac.webkit.org/dev/ 
timeline>.  I intend to add links to these sites from the nightly  
build page so that this information on changes is more readily  

If there is a general opinion that the per-build change notes are  
more useful in some way than the per-revision logs accessible via CIA  
or Trac, I will look into reinstating the per-build notes.  I look  
forward to feedback on this.
