These changes should be present in any device-build that is created using PA as the base. Device specific tweaks (additions and/or removals) implemented on legacy builds or any non-official builds will NOT be listed here, these should instead be noted by the device maintainer/developer in the appropriate device thread. In an effort to keep this concise, minor bug fixes and optimizations will be omitted. Those can be viewed on Github and/or Gerrit. Major user-facing bug fixes would however be noted.
