The above description is the kind of thing that should go into etc/NEWS.

But you forgot to include a ChangeLog entry for that commit.  For the
ChangeLog entry, you should instead include details about which parts of
the code you changed (see
https://www.gnu.org/prep/standards/html_node/Change-Logs.html).  You can
use "C-x 4 a" (both from the calculator.el and the *vc-diff* buffers) to
help you write that.

And the commit message should be a textual copy of the ChangeLog entry
just with the leading TABs stripped (you can use C-c C-a from the
*vc-log* buffer to let Emacs fetch that ChangeLog text for you).
