I cannot stop thinking about this matter! Can it be that you are
implicitly expecting me to understand that a "silent change" type
commit is to be preferred here? Which would mean that I lift the
suggested new entry, concerning 2020-05-07, out of the changelog
file, while instead using a more or less similar text as commit
message for this particular change set. That would also relieve
me of the burden to register non-functional changes to source
files, when only comments are altered.

Please tell me if you prefer this mode of resolution. I have a
pending change sets that implements a IPv6 delegation list to our
whois client, but I do not mind adjusting my arrangements.

Best regards from a constantly learning member,
