Good morning,

Isn't there a txt file about modifications of postal code in http://download.geonames.org/export/zip/ ?

I read a last modification every day
How do I know what has been modified?

Then. in "REV" column in https://www.geonames.org/recent-changes.html
what do numbers and letters mean?

Hey,
nice question. An update information update the postal codes would be nice. The postal codes here are like a black box, I don't know how to edit, add or to delete.
In the user manual it's written to add new postal codes via the alternate names but this have no effects on the postal code dumps

I guess REV is an abbreviation for "Revision". (How much times the place has been updated. You can compare the number with the History of a place. )

About the letters
-C = created
-U = updated
-M = Movement
- I = I guess for some action in the alternate names
