The above link references the original thread on auto-generation of
ChangeLogs, but it doesn't decide on anything at all about it. The
discussion was mainly focussed on policies and temporary workarounds.
The topic as it is presented in the original thread is about what
choices to make when generating, which greatly influences the efforts it
needs to be implemented.
I hope it will allow us to perhaps even start auto-generating ChangeLogs
today, that is, right now, and not just only when we switch to the next
Gentoo on a different level
