The point of this stuff is to prepopulate the vc log buffer with the
relevant ChangeLog entries. If the ChangeLog does not exist, then
obviously it is not going to find any. It does not show you the
ChangeLog buffer that it creates or in any way notify you, so I do not
see how this would help you in the scenario that you meant to write a
ChangeLog entry but forgot, which I presume is what you were referring
to. Could you give an example?

They contain wildcards, ! and ** patterns, etc.

Why would you ignore a file that it not expected to exist in your repo?
