I'd advise against that approach because you are going to 
a) start adding any changes to the end of that changes file
b) potentially have problems  if the image tries to look into what it expects to see as method code.

Simplest is to use the FileBrowser to find the relevant changes file, click on it, note the 'recent changes' button that should appear and choose the date to start scanning from out of the list that should popup. Safe, clean, fast.
