I presume that NightShift uses the per-build changelog, if  
available.  It would make more sense for NightShift to find the  
revision numbers of the last-downloaded and latest available build,  
and use CIA or Trac to pull the relevant changelog information.

The previous changelog was simply a combination of the last few days  
of each of the JavaScriptCore, WebCore and WebKit changelogs.  This  
lead to duplicated portions where changes affected multiple  
frameworks, and made it difficult to scan for the changes since the  
build you last used.  Having NightShift poll CIA or Trac would  
resolve that issue for its users, while those whom manually download  
the WebKit nightly could follow the soon-to-be-added links on <http://
