that's answering the wrong question. changes for 5.x.0 may require a
changelog just as well, as the branch may receive fixes against 5.(x-1).

we could suppress the changelog enforcement for example by standardizing
my "amends <sha1>." lines in the commit messages. if the reference is to
a commit which has not been tagged yet, we know that users won't find it
