Why not stick as much of the system as you can under source control
and then you'd get your logging facility (already built) along with the
ability to see EXACTLY what changes each comment is about.

Plus you can roll back boneheaded changes without having to guess
what the appropriate configuration file used to contain.

Since 2 people editing the file via vi may overwrite anothers comments we need to put a little front end in place to cocatenate the new entries onto the file. The file is just a collection of fields where we indicate what changes we make to a system as we do them. Now rather than re-invent the wheel or go to a hard copy log book is anyone using a piece of software Open Source preferable that tracks those sorts of things?
