The changelog is built-in the rpm format. Therefore, it needs to exists
at rpmbuild stage. Therefore, you need to record past changelog state
so new builds are consistent with previous builds.
The changelog should be consistent, but it needn't record every single
build event. Otherwise OBS would not work at all: the build system bumps
the release field automatically on each rebuild, but it does not touch
the changelog at all.
