standard-version handles versioning, changelog generation, and git tagging automatically. It does so by looking at the commit messages which follow this standard.
This would make it a lot easier for contributors to help out with landing patches because we could use the big green button on github with the "squash and merge" option and then the changelog will be made when we release.
There's also a more involved/hands off method: semantic-release. It's like standard-version, except it will automatically version for you when a commit is merged. This is kind of nice because we won't need to think about what a release is, it just happens based on the commit message, which follows the same standard. Also, it can publish to an npm tag by default so we can promote it to latest on our own time.
What are your thoughts @videojs/core-committers?
Everyone is in agreement that we want to move towards this because it would make it easier for everyone.
