A convention for Changes files

This post is an attempt to pull together in one place all the discussions about a/the changelog format for CPAN modules. Brian Cassidy's CPAN::Changes::Spec defines a format to use for the file, which is currently used by 41% of the distributions on CPAN. Discussions are currently happening in a number of places, including a MetaCPAN issue, a pull request, and a Questhub quest.
