There is no proposal.  I was just trying to resolve a confusion in the
discussion (and clearly failed to do so).

Who cares: it just describes my workflow, nothing more.  If/when I feel
like such a workflow should be turned into a convention that other

If you go back in time, you'll see that I've generally been on the
"don't even bother to clean up the ChangeLog" side of the discussion.
