This is now allowed for in the draft, with the "obvious error" exception.
want to remove irrelevant changelog entries, usually only cases like
"Rebuild for rawhide libfoo-1.2.3" when I have that spec in sync with
previous Fedora/RHEL releases and that changelog entry is
irrelevant/incorrect for other distros.
But those are, as you state, "other distros". Each branch of Fedora
(and arguably RHEL, but I have no influence in internal RHT guidelines
obviously) should have a unique spec file. To do otherwise is to
rewrite history. FESCo recently dealt with exactly this issue, and
took a quite dismal view on it. (though in that case it was a script
that was obliterating changelog entries).
