The commit date has no relation to "the date when the change enters the
Emacs repository" (ie, was pushed to Savannah).

If you want a recent example of this, "make ChangeLog" and look at the
dates of "recent" concurrency entries. Some are years old.

Eg git log --fuller 0ccc5d8998a
Both git dates are 2012-08-15, but the correct date would be 2016-12-10:
