We automatically generate the spec file changelog block each time we make a
new release of anaconda. Check out scripts/makebumpver in the anaconda git
repo on git.fedorahosted.org.
For us, the work is done in git.fedorahosted.org and we make .tar.bz2
releases of anaconda. The resulting archive and spec file are then checked
in to pkgs.fedoraproject.org and built using fedpkg. Same basic workflow
from when it was cvs as well.
