I'll say it again. If you don't want your ChangeLog file to have the
stuff the rest of the world puts in their ChangeLog files, then maybe
you're thinking of a different file. [Where "rest of the world" is most
everything in the GIMP-based universe, the parts of the Linux kernel
which actually have a ChangeLog, glibc, quadra, etc.] When I write in a
ChangeLog, I'm writing for other developers, and probably developers who
are working on the code NOW, not necessarily after its release. If you
want a feature-level overview to refer to from the release announcement,
call it NEWS. If you want a few more technical details, call it
"release notes" (relnotes).
Yes, this does overlap with CVS commit messages. But if you're working
with a checked out copy of the code and you're off-line, you may not
have access to the CVS logs or commits-list archives.
log-edit-insert-changelog gets run by cvs-commit-setup for a reason, and
don't be afraid to use cvs-add-change-log-entry as emacs intended.
