No "From so-and-so" in ChangeLog

Please do not *ever* write "From so-and-so" in a change log entry.  If
someone else wrote the code you are installing, *always* put his name
in the header line of the change.

If the person did NOT write the code you are installing, then don't
ever put something in ChangeLog which could give people the idea that
he did!  If you want to mention who suggested an idea, or who reported
a bug, always say explicitly "idea suggested by" or "bug reported by"
so that there is no doubt ten years in the future.
