Yes, and it seems to have detected, correctly, that ChangeLog should
not be tagged with the "Emacs 25.1 released" entry.  So the procedure
works fine, thanks.

I was just wondering how come we have a ChangeLog (in addition to
ChangeLog.2) file in the 25.1 tarball, and that ChangeLog has only one
entry, about updating AUTHORS.  My hypothesis is that Nicolas ran
add-release-logs, which correctly put the release entry in
ChangeLog.2, and later updated AUTHORS, leaving the log entry in
ChangeLog.  make-tarball then added that ChangeLog to the tarball.

I think we do care, otherwise this bug would have been closed right
away or ignored.
