Completely oblivious to its existence, that's all :)  I'll
(hopefully) remember it next time.

In my case it was entirely ignorance, and with no statistical
evidence to base my assertion I'll say that most other omissions
come from the same cause.

Though on the other hand you could argue that a Changelog for all
eclasses may be a bit overkill.  Most eclasses are not related to
one another, so reading the CVS history of the changes to a
single file is much more useful than having a big list of
unrelated changes.  A changelog becomes much more useful when
you need to make related commits to multiple files with a
non-atomic-commit system like CVS.
