Summary: bdist_rpm and the changelog option

Initial Comment:
I think the changelog option for bdist_rpm is not
correctly handled. The documentation says it should
expect a path to a file containing the changelog
entries, but in bdist_rpm.py, line 200, it tries to
read it as a string (ensure_string etc).

The changelogs are multiple lines, and I was unable to
add multi-lined entries in setup.cfg. Even so, the
documentation is still misleading.

Option hint fixed in revision 1.33 of bdist_rpm.py; fix also backported to 2.2 branch.

Hmm... looking at old versions of bdist_rpm, changelog has always been a string.  We can't change it to a path now because that might break existing setup.py file; instead, the documentation should be fixed.

Thanks for reporting this!
