The ChangeLog should be understandable to someone sitting there with
just the source tarball and no VCS. "Fix revno:foo" is literally useless
to such a person. There's nothing to discuss here. Git hashes versus bzr
revisions, generated ChangeLogs, what gets written in *commit* logs, the
various ways people access the Emacs sources, it's all irrelevant.

Anyway, none of this gets us any closer to 24.4.
So I hope this thread will die, and that people with the time to comment
will instead look at documenting the remaining issues in NEWS and fixing
the numerous outstanding bugs.
