Writing ChangeLog-style commit messages with Magit

Hi all,

I was wondering what's the best way of writing ChangeLog-style commit
messages with Magit. Currently, I'm aware of these options:

- Use "C-x 4 a" to add entries into the ChangeLog file, and then copy
  those over to the commit message buffer when I'm about to create a

- Use "C" while on the diff buffer like described here by Jonas:
  That post is from 2015 though (and according to him "it's not very
  good"), so maybe it's outdated.

- Write and structure the commit message manually (adding change
  descriptions per file/symbol)

So far I've been writing the commit messages manually (just found out
about "C-x 4 a"), so I wanted to know if anyone has a workflow similar
to the first one in the list, or maybe something more automated.
