One aspect of a VCS such as SVN or GIT is that when someone
picks a change, it will pick it from a version number that controls
the whole branch.  In a community effort, it helps people identify
which changes have been picked; in particular, change logs also help
speed up the archeology exercise.  

In the particular instance of new silver, the said branch has
been carefully engineered to make both revision numbers (to help track
down the actual changes) and the ChangeLogs have been side-stepped, to
make the whole exercise more interesting.  In the interest of
community effort.

branching is easy with SVN too, but I suspect that was not the point.
