You don't need to do it on filename - there are more values in a Change class 
that might help.

Are users unique across the repository? Or can you make it so, by adding a 
repo prefix or suffix to the username in the parser? That would need multiple 
parsers (ChangeSources) though.

Alternatively, if you know what revision you have in your Change, then look at 
the self.revision value, and compare that against the most recent revision in 
each repo. If a couple of repos are similar, then it risky. At least you 
could avoid building in repos that can't possibly be right.

Or you could make the commit comments automatically include a repo identifier 
(eg with a pre-commit hook) and filter on that - that would allow you to have 
a single parser, at the cost of some extra noise in the logs.

Any of that help?
