Thiago is quite right. Let's look at the other end of the spectrum:
qtdeclarative repo has had around 3016 commits since v5.1.0, and has
about 9 changelog entries. That's around 0.3% of commits. Given that
overriding the sanity bot has been made a deliberately user-unfriendly
experience, I'd rather not add it to ~99% of commits.

The qtdeclarative repo is of course biased to the other extreme. Both
QtQml and QtQuick are in a state that most changes going in are
reworking the internals, and fixing any regressions caused by such
work. It's probably also missing some changelog entries, I still
haven't gone through those 3016 commits yet to check ;) .
