Currently, the changelog entries can be either listed in a .spec file or they 
could be included by ```%include``` directive. However, usage of the 
```%include``` has one major downside, that the included file must be 
explicitly listed as one of sources, otherwise the file would not be available 
for build from SRPM.

Would it be possible to extend the ```%changelog``` section, so it would accept 
```-f``` parameter with filename. If that file was available, it would do two 
things:

1. Liste the content of that file as changelog
2. Include that file in generated SRPM

That would give a way to remove the long ```%changelog``` sections from .spec 
files, making it more readable and it would enable to autogenerate the 
%changelog entries from SCM logs.
