At the top is what I've always seen done. Means all you have to do to see the
most recent changes is simply open the file and start to read. No scrolling to
the end and all. That'd be nasty with glibc, which has 16-17 changelog files
documenting the history of that behemoth to the time before the stars themselves
were given shape and form.
Granted, simply finding the highest-numbered changelog file, opening it, and
scrolling to the very bottom takes just a hair more effort than just opening
"Changelog" and reading from the top, but at that level, it's a convenience debate.
