The ones who are not interesting in package changelog.

If changelog is :

- Update to new version
- Update patches
- Oops commit the updated patches


The "Oops" line is not useful to someone reading the changelog.
It just means that you used two commits to "Update patches" instead of
one, that does not need to appear in changelog so should be SILENCEd.

Same for "fix typo in the patch I just committed", etc...
