ChangeLog section is obsolete
ChangeLog section in doc/contributing.rdoc is not useful now.
But I think some parts are useful for commit log.
For example: issue relationship.

I agree, we should fix this. The attached patch is my attempt to do so, removing ChangeLog-specific parts and keeping other parts as a guide for commit messages.

- Status changed from Open to Closed
Applied in changeset git|a4b5aaa9a7225693168e43455de2e10c3721b789.
Remove Changelog section from doc/contributing.rdoc [ci skip]
Replace it with a section on commit message formatting. Also,
move the section on rebasing to the bottom, since that only
applies to committers and not most contributors.
