I'm not a git user but I still find it more convenient than any other  
approach because it has fewer steps and it helps me avoid some common  

I do think making it capable of handling subdirectories would be an  
improvement for SVN users. Also, I suspect it doesn't work as well as  
it could for people who prefer to edit ChangeLogs in a non-command- 
line editor, and for people who are very much in the habit of running  
prepare-ChangeLog before they even think about uploading a patch. Even  
with those limitations, I personally find it very useful, and I am a  
grumpy curmudgeon about tools.

On a tangential note, I think another thing that would help in these  
particular cases is enabling more of our JS-only tests to run as part  
of run-javascriptcore-tests, so it's easier for JS hackers to run them  
without having to wait on a WebCore world rebuild.
