Wouldn't that duplicate entries in the Git changelog? If "fedpkg clog" takes 
the topmost entry from the RPM changelog, that will be the same entry as last 
time in those cases that deserve a commit in Git but don't deserve a mention 
in the RPM changelog. It seems to me that fedpkg would have to search the Git 
changelog for the text it took from the RPM changelog, and prompt the packager 
for another log message if it's already there.
