CVS and SVN have global order, hence their ability to create changelogs
that are always growing in a single direction. Git has no global order
when merges are involved. If I merge in a commit made months ago, where
is the correct place for it in the generated changelog? When the
generated changelog is generated from scratch, where does it go? Does it
stay in the same place after more merges?
