Thank you for taking care of this matter.  But, I vaguely
remember that the reason I changed ChangeLog.unicode (I was
using it when I was working on it locally) to ChangeLog.22
was that if the extention of ChangeLog file is not digits,
something wrong happened.  I'm not sure now.

Could you please commit the changes after you confirm that
your or Dave's method for automatically selecting a correct
ChangeLog file name still works?

Hmmm, that looks good; I often edit one branch of emacs using an emacs
executable from a different branch, so switching on the file name seems

Based on the above, I wrote this:

   (defvar change-log-default-name-alist nil
     "Alist used to set `change-log-default-name' locally, based on the buffer 
   Each element's car is a regexp; if the regexp matches the
   buffer's filename, the cdr of the element is used as the value of

   (defun change-log-set-local-default-name ()
     "Maybe set `change-log-default-name', based 
     (let ((clauses change-log-default-name-alist))
       (when (stringp (buffer-file-name))
         (while clauses
           (let ((clause (pop clauses)))
             (when (string-match (car clause) (buffer-file-name))
               (set (make-local-variable 'change-log-default-name) (cdr clause))
               (setq clauses nil)))))))

   (add-hook 'find-file-hook 'change-log-set-local-default-name)

Then I can add something like:

   (setq change-log-default-name-alist
         '(("emacs[-/]unicode[-/]" . "ChangeLog.22")
           ("emacs[-/]lexbind[-/]" . "ChangeLog.lexbind")
           ("emacs[-/]tiling[-/]" . "ChangeLog.tiling")))

[Following my personal directory-naming conventions.]
