The rest of the entry should stay the same unless the changed files/functions list or the bug description has changed. I didn't have your use case in mind here, so it doesn't quite do what you'd like. Both adding an option and not replacing the name/email should be straightforward changes, so I guess it's up to what you'd rather have.

Adding an option to not update the change log will be good. There are cases where you want to intentionally omit some files e.g. a patch to rebaseline thousands of expected results.
