  Such a changelog is normally included in the patch commit message 
itself, like so:

lftp: new package

LFTP is a sophisticated ftp/http client, and a file transfer program

Signed-off-by: ...
  * Config.in: typo corrected
  * ...

  The part below --- is not included in the git history when Peter 
commits it.

  The advantage of this approach is that you can keep the history around 
when you send v3 etc. of the patch. You update the patch using 'git 
commit --amend' or 'git rebase -i', and in the commit message you add the 
history below the --- line. On your side, the part below --- *will* be 
kept in the git history, so the next time you use git send-email, 
everything will be there.
