my understanding is, that the information in the ChangeLogs (from our
CVS history) are not/not completely integrated into the GIT comments. So
they still maintain history information from pre-GIT times.

Your other question. I am sure there will be developers working without
GIT access. They should also have access to the history available in
GIT. We had that discussion when switching to GIT and I am not sure
about the results of that discussion (sorry).
