Description Jeff Pound 2005-05-03 20:00:12 UTC
Description of problem:
when making a changelog entry in a "static { ... }" code block, nothing is
pre-insterted into the changelog entry except a blank line

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.make a changelog entry in a static code block.

Actual results:
no pre generated changelog information is inserted.

Expected results:
the file being modified should be inserted into the changelog the same way it
would if your modification happened in a function.

example code:

public class Foo {
  private static HashMap fooMap;

  static {
    fooMap = new HashMap();
    fooMap.put("foo", "bar");

  public Foo() {

I don't think the GNU rules cover what should appear in this
case, but I would suggest that the "function" be named
"static initializer".
