Generating them from commit messages would do exactly that.  Right now most 
people copy all or at least parts of the ChangeLog entry to the commit message 
anyway.  I agree that the format is useful and I absolutely agree that the 
commit message should not necessarily only be a copy of the ChangeLog entry.

But those points are not really an obstacle or argument against auto-
generation of the ChangeLog _files_ from the commit messages
