Another thing I should mention...

Now the commitlog emails will automatically include a patch, including the
ChangeLog entries.  Also, the first line of the cvs commit Log message
will be used for the Subject line on the email.

Since the ChangeLog entry will come out in the patch part of the email,
just cut-and-pasting it for the cvs commit message is a bit of

Instead, consider it an opportunity to quickly summarize your commit in
one or two lines, and to add additional comments that don't fit into
the ChangeLog format...

(On the other hand, if you're just being lazy, and don't want to write
 something up twice, feel free to cut-and-paste.  I won't complain.)
