Update of bug #29798 (project libredwg):

                  Status:                    None => Need Info              


Follow-up Comment #1:

This looks like a version-skew problem with Git.  The create-changelog
program expects a "git log" command that supports the fancy --format option.

There are two approaches to solve the problem:

(1) require maintainers (or whoever wishes to run create-changelog) to have a
sufficiently up-to-date Git installed;

(2) have create-changelog test "git log" capability at runtime and use a
fallback strategy if older Git is detected.

Personally, i like (1) because that's easy for me.  However, doing (1) does
not set a good example and thus is less desirable, so (2) it will be.

pitanga, could you please post version info for the Git you have installed? 
In the meantime, i will do some archeology on "git log" capabilities to
explore the possibilities for (2).
