The changelog is for the *spec*, not any individual packages. That's the 
way it always was and that's the only thing rpm ever supported.

Prior to the change there could be several %changelog sections in a spec 
but they would all get slopped to the same global changelog without 
proper chronological order applied or ensured etc.

As the commit message says, it's simply to add yet another missing 
sanity check to the spec parser, this is the ticket the message refers 
to (from times before github): http://rpm.org/ticket/27
