Some things that we need to sort out include

Everybody who I talked to about this recommended going this way, so
I'd say we should follow this. I'll add a final note to the current
ChangeLog indicating this.

I'll figure out what to do about autogenerating ChangeLogs in release
tarballs in time for the next releases...

Feel free to copy from Pango. Pango only has one ChangeLog though. You may want to consolidate gtk's many ones now.

The one deviation in this from our current ChangeLog entry style is
that it moves the bug reference from the short explanation to the main
I'm not entirely sure which is better here, a little experimentation
may be needed to come up with the best style.

For Pango I continue to use the bug title line as my short summary. If needed, I retitle the bug first. For example:
