The same way we do today if we only care about the Changelog file.
Otherwise, we'd have to come up with something using Git notes (as
already mentioned earlier in this thread).

For the benefit of other participants in this discussion you might
mention that Org doesn't have a ChangeLog and the only reason we
generate one is that when changes are imported into Emacs there is
suddenly a need to document that merge (typically produced by ~1000
commits from Org) in Emacs' ChangeLog.  Since that operation throws away
all history from Org, it also means you can't use the commit messages
directly for the ChangeLog, no matter how hard you'd wish you could.
That wouldn't necessarily be a problem in Emacs' case where the
correspondence between commit and ChangeLog would be 1:1.
