git log --oneline TAG-OF-PREVIOUS-RELEASE.. | cat

the | cat (or | more) is needed because git log will truncate lines

This is not what I meant.

Upstream may have had 20-30 commits inbetween tags. I wouldn't want to
see 20-30 lines of RPM changelog.

Seems pretty useful for users to see what changed - curious why not?

Users are not programmers. Commits may range from "merge from branch
such-n-such" to "ran indent to clean up formatting" which has extremely
little value to users.

+1 from me. Well, it would be convenient to automate the rpm changelog
creation in some way. But we need *our* changelog for *our* changes to
the package. Most packages ship a NEWS file anyway, which includes the
changes to the software itself.

Best Regards,
Mario
