     I'm starting to get very tired of editing multiple ChangeLog

     to propose that, instead, we write detailed Git commit messages,
     according to the format suggested in the Git manpages[*], and
     then generate a single ChangeLog file in a "make dist" hook, as
     suggested by Jim Meyering:
     If you guys are OK with this, I'll prepare a commit that renames
     the existing ChangeLog files to OChangeLog and adds the necessary
     hook to generate a top-level ChangeLog on "make dist".
Please do.
