Sorry, I didn't reply this one.

Well. You can use Changelog instead of VCS. But what's the point of VCS then? 😊
I mean, if you have changes, you have to know what *are* these changes. I can
imagine some weird workflow where each commit adds a line to Changelog and then
commit messages itself will be empty… But such workflow will be awkward to say
the least.
