Well, I'm pretty sure that release notes are prepared off of the cvs log
entries.  I've never looked at ecpg's Changelog when working on notes,
and I'd be prepared to bet that Bruce hasn't either.  My advice is to
drop the Changelog file and be sure you describe changes appropriately
in the commit messages.
