Sorry, my intent was to simply start a new discussion on the topic.

The mean reason I want everything in the patch is so that I can do:

pwclient get XXX
patch -1 < foo.patch
git am foo.patch

Then I fixup ChangeLog quickly.

Alternatively I would have to cut and paste from foo.patch to

This discussion however is going to degenerate quickly into "Why
do we need ChangeLogs" and that's not a useful place to go.

I will instead take this time to look over again how to do ChangeLog
auto-generation from commit meta-data, to solve this problem more easily.
