[PATCH] Exclude Changelog files from documentation.
The changelogs are almost 7 MBytes large, so that the ri or rdoc output is even bigger. Therefore the changelogs take almost half of the size of the entire output. However the changelog is not really valuable as part of ri or rdoc, IMHO. It may also slows down searches in rdoc.
See patch here: https://github.com/ruby/ruby/pull/1592
This issue arose originally at RubyInstaller2 and is patched there: https://github.com/oneclick/rubyinstaller2/commit/ca359aa3d827a3cbba6c715dcaeca0b03b717d62

I'm not sure that html page of Changelog is not valuable.
Example, permalink of changelog: https://docs.ruby-lang.org/en/2.4.0/ChangeLog-2_4_0.html#label-2016-11-07
I'm going to discuss this issue at next Developer Meeting.
