I'm not talking about Git's history, or accessing history through Git.
I'm talking about ChangeLog files looked at by people who have only
the release tarball (which is why we produce ChangeLog files).  They
don't have Git, they have just the ChangeLog files, and those
ChangeLog files should IMO reflect the ordered sequence of commits to
the branch from which the tarball was created.
