Ok, I have a *serious* problem with this.  First of all, this is the
first I've heard of requiring changelogs.  Second, making them
mandatory immediately (the Build_system wiki page was created
yesterday?) doesn't give people time to update scripts they might
have.  Kernel packages are not done manually; they are autobuilt.  I
don't know which ones make it into which builds.

I don't have time right now to update my build scripts.  Sure, I think
changelogs are a great idea, and I'm more than happy to update the
kernel build scripts to generate them, but I've got more important bugs
to fix right now for the Nov 2 deadline.
