You'd have to modify the script for that.

We don't do that in Qt because the commit subject and the changelog have 
different audiences. The commit subject and most of the body are meant for 
other developers of the same source code and describe why the change was made, 
how it was made, other alternatives, risks, etc. The changelog is meant for 
the users of the API, who aren't familiar with the internals, and describe 
what changed that is relevant for them.


    QMainWindow: respect the maximum size of the central widget
    Make sure the dock widgets get the available space when the
    central widget cannot expand any more.
    [ChangeLog][QtWidgets][QMainWindow] Dock widgets will now be resized
    properly when the central widget has a fixed size.
