I've seen you're working on version control, and that's great because it
is one of the features I am missing. :) Anyway..

I like to add changelog entries while coding to make sure I put in the
file every change and then write a sum-up to use as commit message and I
think that your idea fits both my style and others (like writing
everything just before commit).

So, what would be the better way to implement that? Provide some kind of
changelog service that, passed a set of files and comments update all
ChangeLog files and maybe return a string to be used as commit message?
Or does the version control add-in already provide access to all changed
files and related data (like change notes)?

If you tell me from where to start I'd give it a try.
