I am hoping we don't need to make it mandatory but rather help
maintainers understand that it is useful. If it needs to be mandatory,
it can be part of the rel-eng sign off process. Bodhi can remind people
to fill in the information as well.

In cases, where there is no changelog, why are you pushing the update
into stable releases without even understanding what has changed? If
there is a reason you are doing, stating the reason in the bodhi update
information is enough.
