Looking at the ChangeLog, I see a mix of different styles. I  
personally prefer the human-readable short description first, and I  
prefer to prefix it with a dash, like so:

         - Rename html4.css to html.css, since we target HTML5 now

I wouldn't mind the URL first if it was much shorter and could be on  
the same line as the summary.

Not too picky about this, but since it's a matter of taste, I thought  
I'd chime in.
