I disagree, you are not spamming. Asking why questions makes email
list archive(s) more useful.

The git-log-fix is needed if you decide to use gnulib
gitlog-to-changelog module. When that module is not in use I would
recommend to remove the gen-ChangeLog segment from Makefile.am

p.s. GNU Hello got gitlog-to-changelog in commit below. I hope that
helps you to find unnecessary lines.
