That'd be fine with me, but I'd also suggest to have a pointer to
ChangeLog.GNAT in gdb/ChangeLog, right where the import of Ada changes
is recorded.  Something like "See ChangeLog.GNAT for details of the
changes."

An alternative idea is to put the contents of ChangeLog.GNAT into
gdb/ChangeLog, but indent it so that the date/time stamps of the
included ChangeLog.GNAT are not aligned with the rest of time stamps,
and thus the time monotonicity is not disrupted.  I think the Texinfo
project did that in the past when large changes were merged that were
maintained separately for some time.
