I don't remember the details exactly.  IIRC, I often had to look at
the output of `C-x v l' (vc-print-log), the current diff (`d' =
`log-view-diff') and the diff between the two versions of the file
(Emacs vs. Gnus repository).  Searching in the Changelog file for
possible related changes would make it more complicated.

It's also possible that related changes are not mentioned in the same
ChangeLog file, say lisp/ChangeLog and lisp/gnus/ChangeLog
(e.g. changes in pgg*.el or mail/*.el which also require changes in
gnus/mml*.el).  [I'm not sure that there were such cases, though.]

In general, I agree to the guidelines and it's a good idea to describe
the rules in some file in admin/.  WRT the multi-file commits, it
would be nice if there's a PCL-CVS's commit command that automates
splitting a commit like this one, if we don't want multi-file commits.
