Hi guys,

[skip ChangeLog, maybe use something auto-generated]

while I was sticking long time to our ChangeLog format and workflow,
in the meantime I think we could indeed drop it, that is, drop it in
the (D)VCS.
Just auto-generate it for releases to be included in tarballs as there
is no way for users to query the (D)VCS.
I wouldn't even filter the commit messages in any way, just generate a
fancy ChangeLog from them. This only means we need to take care about
using sane commit messages but we did this before already, I'd say.

When/After switching to GIT, this all should become easier.
