That's way I sent the email. It's been this way for a very long time. I don't recall participating in a consensus building exercise where we changed the requirement, maybe I was sleeping? If you have a pointer to a thread where we changed it, that'd be fine. I'm happy to update my notion if we changed it. The doc page says:
There is no established convention on when ChangeLog entries are to be made for testsuite changes
so, certainly no one reflected any such change in the web pages yet. I'd rather consensus build rather than you or I just passing an edict. Last time we spoke about ChangeLogs, the direction was to eliminate them entirely in preference to the git checkin comments, so, not sure we'd go in that direction today.
