Thanks, Jon. That sounds like a really, good idea.
Some maintainers are saying to put the Changelog after the "---" so
that it isn't included in the patch description.
One of the reasons for including the Changelog in the patch
description, is to credit people with bug fixes, important rework of
the patch, etc.
Do you have any thoughts on this?
