I'm the author of the scripts that are currently used in the GCC.
As mentioned, we update ChangeLog files by a script that takes all
the ChangeLog entries from git commit message. The supported ChangeLog
format is documented here:

and the corresponding script can be seen here:;a=tree;f=contrib/gcc-changelog;h=2900264795a520b5fdf7ccd54f7a08a84dcc35f2;hb=HEAD

I briefly looked at binutils commits and I believe the scripts can
be directly adopted.
