openSUSE ships this in git-core since some time.  AFAIK the only reason
it is still in contrib is the fact that it can't work on Windows.

If it's a sub-package (i.e. the source package is "git"), then you just
package it up the usual way.  If you'd want it standalone (not advisable
in this case) you would need to ITP it so it gets added to the list of
packages you maintain.  BTW, git-merge-changelog (from GNUlib) would be
a candidate for this treatment and is currently lacking from Cygwin.
