Well the point of the ChangeLog file is that the tar.gz should
be self-contained. The tar.gz release archives will essentially
live forever. I wouldn't want to make the same bet of any online
services, including git.

It doesn't really need to be part of the libvirt-client RPM though.
It would be fine in the -devel package alongside the rest of the
docs, so it wouldn't pollute the live cd.
