Re: [AUCTeX-devel] Drop ChangeLog

Dear all,

after having released AUCTeX 11.89, I also officially dropped the
ChangeLog!  So, from now on, when you send patches for AUCTeX or
install changes by yourself (if you have write access to the
repository), do NOT edit the ChangeLog file anymore, but please still
provide ChangeLog entries for the commit message.

In CONTRIBUTE file in Emacs repository
the section "Generating ChangeLog entries" suggests some strategies on
how to insert the entries directly in the commit message.

Happy hacking,
