You don't actually have to document every single line of code that you change (unless you were writing software for safety critical systems), if you follow "Check-in early, Check-in Often" then you're only describing the change as succinctly as possible with each check-in as your changeset is likely to be relatively small. Things tend to get messy if you are into big shot releases where changes have been building up for weeks on end if not months, in that case of course you would lose the track of what has changed and why.

The worst I have seen so far in my experience is someone, and at times me too, had to put in 2-3 mini-bullet points to describe the change at a logical level. But change logs in source files is an old fashioned concept and I haven't really seen it in the places I have worked in so far so I am not going to worry about that as much. My main gripe is with source code comments.
