BTW, such a script regenerates the full ChangeLog file AFAIK. What I like
in my script is that you can hand-edit the ChangeLog file if you really
want, only the new content is auto-generated, the rest is kept.

It's important as we have many old entries where we don't have meaningful
git commit messages.
