Marking r- since this is the wrong fix.

The prepare-ChangeLog script already reports removed files for svn.

I just realized that the actual bug is that prepare-ChangeLog ignores changes
staged to the index for git.  For example, if you use "git rm path/to/file"
instead of "rm path/to/file", the prepare-ChangeLog script ignores this change
since it doesn't use the --cached switch on git-diff.

Also, if you git-add changed files before running prepare-ChangeLog, those
changes won't be seen, either.

Should we be running git-diff with and without "--cached", or should we be
looking at the output of git-status and parsing both of its sections?

Kevin, are you using svn or git?  Does the above explain the issue you're
