That could work, provided that Someoneā„¢ will post the changes to the
gitlog-to-changelog script (or maybe an entirely different script) to
produce ChangeLog from the log messages.

This solution should also support merging from the release branch to
master and cherry-picks in the opposite direction, where (AFAIK) SHA1
checksum is not necessarily left intact.
