The reason I haven't commented on it is that I still think it's
horrible as a changelog format.

My changelog/announcement format has almost all[*] the information
that is in yours, but is more human-readable.  It is no less
machine-readable, IMO (indeed, my dates are in a more standard format
than yours, for example).

[*] The only information mine doesn't have that yours does is the
information about where in the FTP site the files go.  I don't think
that information belongs in a changelog entry, and it shouldn't be
specified by the package maintainer.
