For this reason and many others, I suggest blocking commits directly to
master.

Instead, people should commit to a private branch they can rewrite (git
push -f after amending a commit, for instance) and then a build system
can merge that into master when it passes ChangeLog checks (and possibly
a basic build check, and possibly maintainer approval).

This is, of course, the PR system you find on Github and such sites. It
works for thousands of projects.  I see no reason why Emacs is special.
