The `HACKING' changes looks good overall, thank you!  The "complete
description in the commit message" should rather be "complete
ChangeLog-style description in the commit message (see the GNU Coding
Standards for details)".  The sentence "Post your patch to
address@hidden" lacks a period.

(It was funny to see notes about EGCS, a patch for CVS, etc.  ;-))

Not sure.  How about just renaming them to `ChangeLog-2008' for now, and
add a top-level `ChangeLog' that reads something like "Please refer to blah blah blah"?
