Some of it could probably be done by a script, but not the whole
ChangeLog, see below.

Not really. The weekly reports included new/deleted spells, updated
versions and any other spell changes done by the guru. The grimoire
ChangeLog includes every change that happens on the grimoire level (i.e.
without showing up in a spell's history). Mostly because there's no
other place to record such changes like deleted spells, moved spells,
added grimoire functions, ...
Technically new spells don't fit into that category completely as they
have an entry in a spell's history (their own), but several people
thought it'd be strange to include deletions but not additions.
