@cindex Log Edit mode
@cindex mode, Log Edit
Buffers for entering/editing log messages for changes which are about
to be committed are put into Log Edit mode.
Sometimes the log buffer contains default text when you enter it,
typically the last log message entered. If it does, mark and point
are set around the entire contents of the buffer so that it is easy to
kill the contents of the buffer with @kbd{C-w}.
@findex log-edit-insert-changelog
If you work by writing entries in the @file{ChangeLog}
(@pxref{(emacs)Change Log}) and then commit the change under revision
control, you can generate the Log Edit text from the ChangeLog using
@kbd{C-a C-a} (@kbd{log-edit-insert-changelog}). This looks for
entries for the file(s) concerned in the top entry in the ChangeLog
and uses those paragraphs as the log text. This text is only inserted
if the top entry was made under your user name on the current date.
@xref{(emacs)Change Logs and VC}, for the opposite way of
working---generating ChangeLog entries from the revision control log.
In the Log Edit buffer, @kbd{C-c C-f} (@kbd{M-x log-edit-show-files})
shows the list of files to be committed in case you need to check
When you have finished editing the log message, type @kbd{C-c C-c} to
exit the buffer and commit the change.

Log View mode provides a few useful commands for navigating revision
control log output. It is used for the output buffers of both
@code{cvs-mode-log} and @code{vc-print-log}.

In this mode, @kbd{n} goes to the next message and @kbd{p} goes to the
previous message and @kbd{N} and @kbd{P} go to the next and previous
files, respectively, in multi-file output. With a numeric prefix
argument, these commands move that many messages of files.
