It's a distributed SCM there isn't really a place to put them, how do
you deal with people doing branches and merging them, trying to force
the ideas from a centralised SCM onto a distributed SCM is usually a
bad idea, you still end up colliding the Changelog, to be honest the
old Xfree86 changelog was fairly useless due to the mass commits, and
update style messages, maybe the tar ball creation process could
contain a list of commits since the last release tag.
