I guess any change to the name is a good one. ChangeLog_pre_git is probably
descriptive enough. Some other ideas I had were ChangeLog.cvs or maybe
ChangeLog.old for a filename?
I think the git log is superior to manual ChangeLog entries, and we can
produce higher level changes/news reports separately. Probably there is
some way to either dump the log or selected entries when making a tar or
offline distribution. This is something we can consider.
