How about generating a Changelog-file based on all previous
commits initially. When doing new commits, it should be updated
with the previous commit with a pre-commit hook. The rpm-changelog
should then contain this changelog-file + the last commit.
Then the changelog-history would contain full commits by default,
while still being editable.
