You are mixing up spec %changelog with SCM log. Only thing I've changed
was removing "-" in first item and adding 1 empty line after it. I never
use clog for creating changelog in spec so I don't know how it's
supposed to work. I assume it stopped working right after cvs->fedpkg
transition. Guidelines say nothing about SCM log, just about spec
%changelog format

I just do C-c C-r to raise release number, C-c C-e to
write my message, then "fedpkg commit -c" to create commit out of it.
Works like a charm
