+** You may find it useful to install the git-merge-changelog merge driver.
+See for
+information on how to install it.

The email referenced above contains a script that generates a tarball. I don't see instructions on how to install git-merge-changelog.

The comments in gnulib/lib/git-merge-changelog.c explain the purpose of git-merge-changelog and how to install it.

The installation is done automatically by bootstrap, so most of the steps in git-merge-changelog.c would be confusing.

Using the tarball, you just have to use "make install" to place the program on the path. OTOH, I learnt now (from git-merge-changelog.c) about gnulib-tool's --create-testdir option which makes my tarball-generating script somewhat irrelevant now. I'll change HACKING to refer to something like the recipe given in git-merge-changelog.c:

  $ ./gnulib-tool --create-testdir --dir=/tmp/testdir123 \
  $ cd /tmp/testdir123
  $ ./configure
  $ make
  $ make install

after I've tested it.
