Why to include date at all? I thing only thing which is really
interesting to changelog reader is version information. Details are
always available in subversion.

There is always question what is change and what is new...

Ok for me.

Why is here name twice?

>      - BUGFIX: some notices

repeating BUGFIX on each line looks a bit overhead for me. How about
only sign which will determine type of record?


 - bug #123465 [themes] - fixed something (User Name <user at nowhere.org>)
 + RFE #654321 [gui] - added support for blah and make it look
   better (Another User <user at somewhere.org>)

BTW: When at this: try to commit to subversion with same message as you
write in changelog.
