Generate Change Log

Idea: A way to generate a change log for a Milestone.  It would use a template file included in the repo itself, and allow grouping by labels.  This would be a huge boon for OSS maintainers.  If it were shown in a text buffer, it could be pasted into a GH release or in a local change log addendum.

We feel this pain with each release of JupyterLab because it is a large project with lots of contributors. A head start on the change log would be very helpful.
