Yes, I didn't like them either. That's why instead of whining I sent
Jesse a patch and it's been fixed for a few months. I suggest you retry.

That is if your gripe was that messages from changelog were like this:
"- line one
- line two
- line three"

i.e. there was no empty line so git chucked them all into subject when
generating mails. Now they do:
"line one

- line two
- line three"
