Yes, please. As I state in
the changelog really is very important. It serves as a detailed
history of the changes and their reasons, more so than commit
messages. Esp. because typically you work for a while (sometimes
days) before committing. I find that if I don't log to the ChangeLog
things /as I do them/, later when the time to commit comes, I don't
really remember all the changes I made. So my approach is:
- ChangeLog: detailed report of what I'm changing, as I go.
- commit message: brief summary of the effect of the commit,
highlighting anything of special importance that other devs should pay
