RE: Capturing Schema changes ??

the Change Management pack is nice but it records changes by way of comparing schemas, IE it is reactive.

Take baseline snapshot.

change 1 made on object A
change 2 made on object A

Change Management- snapshot taken.

now it only shows the difference between base line and Change 2, it does = not
know about change 1.

and it is dependant on the regular snapshots taken.
