Can you please fix your mail client to not copy half of the mail header
into your reply?

That's also relevant information for me, right?

Sure. But where is that information in the changelog?

I'm not insisting on that, but you could at least have had the courtesy
of responding to my review reply and explain to me why you want to solve
it differently and why my suggestion is not the right solution.

Alternatively you could have added that information in the changelog or
cover letter.

So in summary you ignored _all_ review comments I made, went off and did
something different and provided a slightly different useless changelog
with the extra add on of a broken Signed-off-by chain.

Feel free to ignore my reviews and the documentation which we put out
there to make collaboration feasible for both sides, but please don't be
upset when I ignore you and your patches in return.
