I wasn't aware of that, but I just gave it a try and it seems to rock!
The doc is also nice.  Good to hear from Marius!  ;-)

Then I guess I'm happy to abolish ChangeLogs.  Two questions remain:

  1. Should we remove ChangeLog files from the repo?
  2. Should we generate ChangeLogs for releases?

I'd say "yes" to (1) and "no" to (2).  That would be a departure from
the GNU Standards, but perhaps it's a sign of their age.
