Oh, then I don't understand why you separated that sentence into its own

paragraphs should go before the ChangeLog entries, because that format

It's alright. I have kept the whole thing as a single paragraph.

There should be double space between sentences though.

The attached patch has this fixed.

Btw if you don't mind explaining:
- How did you detect that minor missing space? Do you have a minor mode? Or do you have a check function?
- Being used to using single spaces at end of sentences, I always forget adding double spaces. Is there a robust way to ensure that sentences always end in double spaces in commit messages and in the docstrings?

Oops, right.  (I would consider just putting a single save-excursion
around the 'when', but it doesn't hugely matter either way (and Drew
would probably not like the single save-excursion version ;) [1]).)

It did actually occur to merge the two save-excursions, but for code clarity, I kept them separate. I did not want to merge the save-excursion in the "condition" part with the "action" part in

 The attached patch has the double space fixed in the commit message.
