           Summary: prepare-ChangeLog does not detect removed files when git
                    is used
           Product: WebKit
           Version: 522+ (nightly)
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: New Bugs

        ReportedBy: freyther at handhelds.org

The current prepare-ChangeLog script is not able to detect removed files. These
files where removed using git-rm and there are at least two reasons for that:

 1.) Using git-rm file, the index gets updated and git-diff will not show the
removal of the file
 2.) If git-diff --cached is used the removal of files will be indicated but
for removal "^D " is used which is not known by prepare-ChangeLog.

The following hack works to detect removals but it will fail with the
--git-commit mode of prepare-ChangeLog. Also Adam mentioned that adding "^D" to
the isAddedStatus() is kind of odd.
