OK, well, pretend I explained what the likely characters in a file name
are (the ones which ChangeLog mode already knows about, since it
font-locks them).

In summary, I think it's possible and you don't. In the unlikely event
someone ever works on this, they can make up their own mind.

Your example was this:

   * file1, file2, file3, file4, file5, file6, file7, file8, file9:
   * file10, file11:

In this example, file1 and file10 follow "TAB * ", but all the rest do
not.

Files are what come after "TAB * ". Font-lock manages to figure it out.

Well, if you just type manually a bunch of file names, how is Emacs to
know they are file names?  You can format it any way you like, it's
just text as far as Emacs is concerned.

The format I show above is produced by "C-x 4 a" and friends, when you
type that command in several buffers one after the other.

How do you expect Emacs to distinguish between a list of files and
arbitrary text, in your scenario?  You only want it to do that
for files, right?

Really?

You type:

     * file1, file2, file3, ...

and auto-fill gives you the format you quote? That seems very odd to me,
and not what I see. But that's not really relevant AFAICS, since it's
not the format I asked for.

It does neither.  It does this instead:

	* file1:

	* file2:

	* file3:

Package: emacs
Version: 24.4
Severity: minor

I can't find the reference for why I think this, so maybe I'm just
wrong, but I always thought that multi-line file lists should be written
in ChangeLogs as:

   * file1, file2, file3, file4, file5, file6, file7, file8, file9:
   * file10, file11:

But Change Log mode fills such lines as:

    * file1, file2, file3, file4, file5, file6, file7, file8, file9,
    file10, file11:

Please could it use the former format.

TIA.
