Added by jeremyevans (Jeremy Evans) 5 months ago

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.

Fixes [Bug #14886]

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.
