To explain in some more depth:

If the ChangeLog timestamp differs from the one that's recorded in
CVS/Entries, then repoman thinks you've modified the ChangeLog manually
(or with echangelog), and it assumes that it shouldn't try to generate
an entry. You can use repoman --echangelog=force to force repoman to
generate a ChangeLog entry in this case.
