It also requires more care in writing commit messages, since often (although I
can't speak for Emacs) commit messages and changelogs are intended for
different audiences.  When committing changes in Mailman for example, I'll
include a lot more detail about a change so that future developers have a good
history spelunking experience, but a changelog/NEWS file will give only the
higher level user visible changes.
