If you enter it twice, you're not using your tool right.  Emacs can
extract the commit message from the ChangeLog file right before you
commit, so you don't have to enter it twice.

IOW, please guys re-read the corresponding thread from a few years back.
Nothing much has changed.

The main issues were (and are) the following:
- How to edit past commit messages when they're incorrect/incomplete/...?
- How to do C-x 4 a when there's no ChangeLog file?
- This last one can get a bit more delicate if you want to be able to do

     C-x 4 a
     C-x C-c
     restart Emacs

  since this requires saving the commit message which you started
  writing in the first Emacs session: the ChangeLog file naturally lives
  across Emacs sessions, whereas the *VC-Log* buffer doesn't.
