I'm not concerned with the quality of the messages. I think we mostly
write sane commits.

The problem I had trying to make release notes was not knowing where
to start looking at commits. Without having a stable point in time on
master where I trusted the contents of NEWS and CHANGES I was left to
try to scan the log back to the divergence point of 1.3.x and master,
which git tells me was in November.

I think I could propose some merge conventions, and keep them simple,
that will make it easier to maintain these, but nothing beats just
doing it as we go.

I'm not sure we really need to add tooling here. We just need to write
docs and notes as we go. No?
