As I've said already I pretty much agree with this.

The reason I sent the patch was that sending changelogs like that for
trivial changes is getting me negative feedback and I'm seeing other
comments about "unchangeloged patches" on the lists so I'm pretty sure
it's not just something I'm doing.  I'm not saying I'm always blameless

does suggest that one line changelogs are just considered not to have

Some consistency would be good here.
