What do you all think about including a section in prefaces to
software and hardware manuals that lists the changes made to those
books since the previous release/edition?

Do you think readers/users really care whether the name of a
chapter was changed, or that it was moved somewhere else in the book?

I'm having trouble justifying such a section in the prefaces to the
books in our library, and would like to know what you all think, what
you do, and so on.
