Here is my version:

ChangeLog entries that have an empty line between them are independent of
each other.  (I admit that one could argue whether regenerating a
compiled file is independent of changing its source file or not, but in
my book it is.)  Now, you change such a source file --- configure.ac ---
and commit that change.

[Date.]  [Who.]  [Where.]

        * configure.ac: Foo.

Afterwards you regenerate the compiled file --- configure --- and commit
that change.  Then the ChangeLog looks like this:

[Date.]  [Who.]  [Where.]

        * configure: Regenerate.

        * configure.ac: Foo.

Of course, committing the whole lot directly as...

[Date.]  [Who.]  [Where.]

        * configure.ac: Foo.
        * configure: Regenerate.

... wouldn't be wrong either, but as I said, I don't know if the files's
time stamps will be alright then.

``6.8.1 Change Log Concepts

You can think of the change log as a conceptual ???undo list??? which
explains how earlier versions were different from the current version.


6.8.2 Style of Change Logs


Separate unrelated change log entries with blank lines. When two entries
represent parts of the same change, so that they work together, then
don't put blank lines between them.''
