That was what I had in mind when I wrote point 3 on my list of criteria 
for not requiring ChangeLog format 
<https://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/bug-standards/2017-07/msg00000.html> - 
commits for logical changes, not huge commits like "Bash-4.4 distribution 
sources and documentation" 
clearly being needed to be able to use the version control history for 
exploring past changes.

(bash has a symlink ChangeLog -> CWRU/changelog, where the latter has 
ChangeLog-like descriptions of changes to named entities, but not in 
ChangeLog format and only for changes since the previous release.)
