Already covered, in the "Generating ChangeLog entries" section.

I tried using that procedure, and it didn't work for me. So it appears that the procedure could be documented better for new contributors who are not used to Emacs VC (as I am not; I use vc-dwim). Let me explain the problem I ran into, and then perhaps we can come up with an improvement to CONTRIBUTE.

I made a trivial change to Makefile.in, and then typed C-x 4 a. This created a file ChangeLog, and I edited it to look like this:

2015-04-17  Paul Eggert  <address@hidden>

        Try to make a trivial change (Bug#1234)
        * Makefile.in: A trivial change.

I then typed C-x C-s to save it, and type C-c C-a as CONTRIBUTE suggested. Emacs responded "C-c C-a is undefined". What did I do wrong?
