That seems to be why Emacs and other GNU projects have moved to
a ChangeLog format that only lists the date in ISO format (YYYY-mm-dd)
and no time. The GCC ChangeLog appears to have a mixture of this and
the earlier style.

That reinforces the reason to switch to a plain ISO date. The time of
change is essentially meaningless. The date is less likely to change,
and any change will be reasonably small.
