Yeah, but as you are "messing around" with the internals, all I can 
offer you is "have a look into the code."  The high-level changelog is 
"lots of paths changed due to layer merging" and the low-level changelog 
is the git logs---there's unfortunately nothing in-between that might be 
of help to you.
