Perhaps install a script which automatically takes the CVS comment when
some of these files is changed and adds this comment automatically to
the ChangeLog?

I think he meant something which would add an entry to the ChangeLog
during the commit stage without extra intevention. Having said that,
many developers have some form of commit script which contains things
like manifest, changelog and commit commands.

So if you want to know both, you need to look in 2 places? That doesn't
seem very nice to me. Also in a distributed VCS, we'd want to generate
ChangeLogs from the commit logs to avoid all kinds of annoying conflict
resolution and remove redundant information.

I need to write up an announcement for the changes, then Xavier will
flip the switch. Think days not weeks.
