First of all, I didn't say I wouldn't apply the patch, did I?

Second, I asked you *nicely* to add a changelog so that I don't need to write
it for you.

I don't know what made it difficult to understand.

Anyway, I ask everyone to write changelogs and nobody has had any problems with
that so far. I don't see why I should avoid asking you to follow the rules
that everybody else is asked to follow. If those rules are too difficult for
you to follow, I'm sorry.
