Regarding the first proposal (ChangeLogs), I would wait, because that
will also depend on the DVCS choice that is currently being considered.
It seems to me that the ChangeLog policy might be related to the DVCS
tool. But you might ask developers to stick with traditional ChangeLogs
as long as we use SVN, at least for po directories.
The second proposal would be a nice-to-have, but IMHO the Makefile.am
for documentations is usually very short, hence minimizing the advantage
of a separate LINGUAS file.
Moreover, when we'll automate the commits with a Transifex-like
functionality, these issues will fade somewhat.
