It would actually be OK with me to stop maintaining a monolithic
ChangeLog.  It would be more useful to generate a "release notes" file
that has only the changes since the last such file.  That would allow
manual corrections to said file to be preserved without concern that
they'd be stepped on by the next auto-generate, and make it a lot
easier to see what differs from the previous release (right now one
has to sort of search through ChangeLog for references to the release

(OTOH it means more files to search for a particular change, if you
don't have access to the git logs.)

However, *IF* we're going to continue to maintain ChangeLog, I'd
prefer that we continue maintaining it in its present form.
