ChangeLog-style formatting. Sorry. I was talking about the benefits and
reasons for having that specific format and the problems from when the
format is not followed (bad formatting, misspellings, etc.)

I was trying to say that using a pull request system would reduce the
need for writing every commit message as if it was going into a
ChangeLog, and would give better assurance that mistakes are caught
before they get merged. It has many other benefits (code review,
community feedback) but I was commenting specifically for ChangeLogs,
following up to an old message. I hope that's more clear.
