The Changes as a dump of git log is unreadable.
Look for example at release 0.12 that has a single line: "travis.yml: add travis ci config". This change is totally irrelevant for CPAN users (I even wonder why a realease was published for this change).
By the way if I want to see the log of the revision control system I can go to https://github.com/ghedo/p5-FFI-Raw/commits/master and it'is much more readable.

So a human readable changelog would be much welcome. CPAN::Changes::Spec could be used as a template.

You are perfectly right. I thought of switching to sane changelogs a few times but never done it out of laziness. The NextRelease Dist::Zilla plugin looks like a good start.

(btw, the 0.12 release was meant to update the META.* files after I changed my GitHub username)

Fixed! Should be more readable now, what do you think?
