That's fine, and you can continue doing that even after we have a script. Other
"stop and think twice" techniques work better for me, in the sense that they
find mistakes more efficiently than ChangeLog-writing does. (Reading the diff is
one of these techniques.) The goal is developing and maintaining the best
software we can with the limited resources we have.
