The kernel changelogs are very incomplete, and have been so for at
least the last several years, if not longer. (I'm not saying this is
necessarily a bad thing, but it's just the way it is.)

Examining the kernel SRPM is a good place to start if you want to figure
out what's changed. For instance, 1.469 appears to be based on kernel
2.6.7-bk15, whereas 1.471 appears to be based on 2.6.7-bk18. (There may
be other changes, but that's the most immediately obvious one...)
