How can I list summary of changes in a delivery?

 Hi. . . I want to start a build process based on changes in the last delivery (or possibly changes delivered since an arbitrary date).  Since this will be a command line build process, can anyone suggest how I would get this information from SCM commands?  Ideally, I would want a list of delivered changesets changes that I could then look up for more information on the changes (such as code comments, change author, dates, etc).

While I'm familiar with the scm list changes and list changeset command, I'm not sure how to go about finding the specific subset of changes I'm interested in -- namely, the changes that were just delivered (and which presumably started the build process).  I'm really after the mythical command, scm list deliveries. . . :)

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

- Andy

Hi Andy,
I'm not sure if it's possible to do exactly what you're looking for, but I found this forum post that describes the compare command to find the new changes since a baseline:  Perhaps the compare command can also be used in the way you want it to.

That sounds like a pretty good possibility!  Thanks, I'll give it a try and will post back.

Found a couple additional articles that were helpful: 

Also, by using the -j option to generate JSON, this should be a pretty functional approach.
