Is there a way to insert relevant entries from the ChangeLog into the Magit commit message? I'm thinking of how the built-in Emacs VC's C-c C-a (log-edit-insert-changelog) command works.

  • Most people do the opposite: generate the ChangeLog file with git log (or just tell people to use git or browse Github to see the change log). Jul 6, 2015 at 21:57

Yes, but it's not very good. While you are writing a commit message, switch to the diff buffer and then press C on a hunk whose changes you want to describe. Then repeat for all such hunks... I said it wasn't very good.
