That would be a good idea in the long(ish) term.  In fact, I pesonally see
ChangeLogs as a relic of the pre-VCS era; they were surely VERY useful to
track regressions and bugs and backward-incompatibilites back then, but
today that we have the "real" project history in the VCS repo, and lots of
tools to view and analyze it, the ChangeLogs (as well as the GCS rules to
write them) are becoming more and more of a nuisance.
