There *is* a clear reason: offline and tarball use.   What you really
mean is that there is no rational reason why GNOME can't use
auto-generated ChangeLog.  One reason is: for previous commits.  Moving
to a generated ChangeLog means losing a certain piece of history because
many modules have crap log in their history...
