The commit message is part of the patch. This is git, you
should not skimp on committing locally :-) (you can always run 'git
commit --amend' if you need to make more changes to the same patch)

You then generate the patch using 'git format-patch HEAD~' or the
equivalent magit command.

Since youʼre using magit, you can start your commit, then run
`magit-generate-changelog', which will insert a skeleton ChangeLog
formatted entry based on the diffs of the files that youʼre
committing. You then just need to write a one-line summary of the
change, and describe the changes in the individual files.
