I think this is about having some sort of pointer to a ChangeLog or
similar resource (so that someone interested can see the commits for
each branch).  I didn't look at your patch, but if you provide a pointer
to the Git "summary", that seems enough.

BTW now that they are pestered with the PgFoundry commit messages, the
pgsql-committers archive do not seem a very useful resource anymore.
The Git "shortlog" seems much better, so maybe we should point to that.
