But "name" of a changelog entry is ambiguous.  createrepo takes the
position of calling it the author of the changelog entry, which was
surprising to me in our discussion a couple of years ago, and you seemed
to understand that point of view:

Has something changed since, like the purpose of changelogname
documented to have a certain official meaning?
changelogname->changelogauthor could be called overloading or narrowing
too... ;)
