OK, I can install the attached instead. It won't fix mistakes in Perl, and it will still be better than what we have now (where ChangeLog.2 is plainly bogus in the 'master' branch). It's intended as a stopgap measure until we come up with something better.
Isn't it easier and simpler just to delete ChangeLog.2 from the master
branch, and leave everything else intact?

No, as that would erase the relevant emacs-25 history from the master branch. Also, it would leave intact the procedure for updating ChangeLog.2 in the master branch, even though we should not be using that procedure there as things stand, and Murphy's law would apply if we left it in there (someone would go ahead and use the procedure anyway).
