Soon after I switched from CVS to Bazaar (bzr), I stopped using
changelog files. Instead, before I make a release, I update a NEWS file
which summarizes the changes since the previous release, and also add a
dump of the commit messages (bzr log --long --verbose, more or less) to
sit next the tarball, but that is not included in the package itself.

So far I'm happy with this solution.
