For the purposes of a council meeting, I think we should construct a
small set of specific proposals to choose from so we don't get mired in
endless discussions during the meeting.
I'd like to offer a couple of them for us to choose between.
1. Include all commits, don't retroactively change existing ChangeLog
2. Allow commit filtering, don't retroactively change existing ChangeLog
- Filters to allow: keywording, stabilization, removal of ebuilds.
Whoever implements the code can decide on the format of said filters.
Do any council members feel strongly that we should include additional
options, or is it good enough to just make a choice on these two?
