It definitely shouldn't be checked into git, but rather generated from
the git commit logs; with git2cl, git log or similar. With an autotools
based build system you would add a command to the Makefile.am so that
automake runs git2cl during 'make dist' / 'make distcheck'. For
non-autotools based projects you usually won't have a standard 'make
dist' so it would need to be added to whatever script is the equivalent.

Its the standard ancient GNU form for a ChangeLog. I have no opinion on
its aesthetics and I don't think it matters what format it has really.
