I'm open to start a discussion about ChangeLog for post svn times as
with correct merging its really not much of a benefit (even there are

BUT: As we are currently on svn and build system for geany-plugins is
expecting a ChangeLog I disagree to do this discussion for 0.21 release
of plugins. So discussion is having no impact onto upcoming release :)
