*Hello**I am using an uncommon VCS, so not one of the popular ones like Git
or Mercurial.**When I do a build I get a text file with all the changes in
the baseline that I am building.**I want to use this list of changes to
populate the Change tab*

To that end I want to use the addChange
api call for each entry in the file that I have, so I can have a list of
changes for the buildrequest
addChange(*files=None*, *comments=None*, *author=None*, *revision=None*,
*when_timestamp=None*, *branch=None*, *category=None*, *revlink=''*,
*properties={}*, *repository=''*, *codebase=None*, *project=''*, *src=None*)
I am not clear how to call this method so that I can pass in the contents
of the file that my VCS gives me.
Do I need to add a util.renderer decorated function to my master.cfg?
Can I use an external python file to add the changes to a specific
Does anyone have an example of how I might make use of this API call?

I could really use the help.Thanks
