I'm running RANCID 2.3.1 without any issues and also it was a great
learning experience.  

There might be a small patch for this already.  Please point me in the

The existing versions of rancid doesn't show this line when there was a
written change.  Perhaps it is filtered, don't know.

1. Is there a small mod that can be made in some of the script files so
that this line is documented?
2. If this has been asked before where can I find change.
