Is this the right tool for me?

Probably not. There are a range of other tools that probably do a better job.

Take a look at

Nonetheless, for me and my projects, it's the second best thing after manually keeping a changelog as suggested at http://keepachangelog.com.

When will it work for me?

My process Will this tool work for me?
I need elaborate changelogs No
I push directly into the default branch No
Rebase and merge No
Squash and merge No
Merge pull request Yes

Why is this tool so limited?

All this tool does is this:

  • it collects commits between references
  • it matches commit messages against what is used by GitHub as a merge commit message
  • it fetches the pull request title from the corresponding pull request
  • it then uses all of the pull request titles to compile a list
