We talked about this today.
Since using the normal ChangeLog file makes merges hard, we will stop

For the Python branch I think we decided to stop adding to the
ChangeLog file, but instead to write the same text into the git commit

prepare patches for upstream.
For other branches, we didn't see any reason to mandate a particular

with git commits -- though if you do the latter, please be careful to
write good entries.
