The content looks good, but it's fairly different and much more verbose
style than we traditionally did, which also generally focussed on user
visible changes.

This is how I would have written the log in the "old" style:

xfsdump-3.0.6 (5 October 2011)
        - unconditionally add checksums to various dump headers in
          xfsdump.
        - verify checksums if present in xfsrestore.
        - use the POSIX signal API instead of the legacy SysV API.
        - various internal cleanups and refactoring in xfsdump and
          xfsrestore.
        - lift the limit of options in dialogs from 8 to 99.
        - various build system fixes, thanks to Ted Ts'o.

same applies to the other logs.
