Often when I merge a PR I do so using GitHub's web interface because I'm
not at my workstation so I don't have the code checked out, but it is easy
enough to also use GitHub's web interface to edit and commit the CHANGELOG
file directly to master after the merge, so I'm not against changing the
policy regarding the CHANGELOG.

About AUTHORS, if we are changing things, IMHO we can delete that file and
add a link to the README pointing to
