I don't think anyone wants changelogs in actual final commits, they usually go under "---" in patch submissions.

b4 doesn't really need to manage per-patch changelogs -- they should just go under "---" in the commit. When you send the series either via "b4 send" or via git-send-email, the changelogs will be properly included in the message, but they won't make it into the tree after the maintainer runs "git am", because git will drop anything under the first "---" in the commit message.

The cover letter changelog is supposed to be higher level than individual patch changelogs, so I don't think it makes sense for b4 to collect them from individual patches.
