As a tangential note: these sorts of trackers have somewhat limited
usefulness; many relevant changes are not directly reflected in the
C-level ABI/API. As an example, we are just discussing the
compatibility impact of adding a parameter to a signal in
https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=754743
The change will clearly cause problems for applications connecting to
this signal, but it will not show up in your ABI report at all.
