Hi all,

following an general agreement on this being a useful feature, REP 132 
has now been deemed ready for the community to vote on.
REP132 describes a changelog file format to be used in ROS packages, 
such that the change notes can be distributed more nicely and hoping 
that tool support will motivate maintainers to write up changes for new 
versions in the first place.

The only larger controversy was about whether to support changelogs in 
other places than a CHANGELOG.rst file at the package root, such as 
changelogs embedded in general text of a README.rst. The majority vote 
in the small meetings decided to stick with something simple for now, so 
no other places than CHANGELOG.rst

The REP in its current form is here:

Please vote for this feature.

Thanks to Mirzah Shah who wrote the first version of this REP.
