I definetly agree with your goal, to reduce duplication of changelog
information. But if we're already changing this, let's consider a
revolution instead of reformation ;) Do we really need to use the GNU
ChangeLog format? Why don't we just switch to the default format of
git log like e.g. linux does it?
