You really need to watch the syslog output from the routers for that.
The 'show running' info only mentions the last change, not all of
the ones before that.

Thanks a lot for your quick response, but this is exactly what I'm looking
for. I know that only the last "changer" will be saved that way but, based
on the fact that this would be stored at CVS, it would work for me. A simple
Diff would show the config changes and, at least, the one who did the
"latest" change since the last run of Rancid.
