This might have the opposite effet than desired. Well in that case, let's just use changelog entries like * Closes: #1234, #2345, #3456, #4567 That will save developers some work, right? Or, even better, let's just drop usage of that work and time-consuming BTS altogether. To save developers even more work, let's allow them to never test, or even build, a package before upload.
