Any thoughts on keeping the ChangeLog formatting, but just putting it
in the commit message and generating the ChangeLog from commit
No thoughts at all. I see no reason why we couldn't do it.
Are you volunteering?
git log + ChangeLog = Commit log + structured change log.By autogenerating, you simply don't have to mess with the ChangeLog
anymore. Dates & authors come directly from git, no more ChangeLog
git log = Commit log + structured change log.
There just doesn't seem to be enough difference to pay the cost
