Well, I guess you could put it there, but that wouldn't remove the need 
to put the changelog in the individual patches too, so that reviewers 
don't have to switch back and forth between different messages just to 
find out what changed in each patch.

+1 on sending the cover letter using git format-patch/send-email 
thoughl; the threading here is a little odd.
