Yes.  A single merge-commit to the unicode-2 branch represents many,
many changes on the trunk (hundreds of files, often multiple changes to
each file), so I don't include changelog info in the CVS log entry at
all.  The CVS log entry more or less says "merge from trunk of
changesets X-Y."

You'll find that this is _always_ how merging is done though, regardless
of who does it, because to actually track down the separate changelog
entries, package them up, and commit each file separately would be a lot
of work, very slow, and bloat the CVS logs, all for very little gain.


Fast, small, soon; pick any 2.
