Patch using clog a default update
Description of problem:
The current default update description when doing "fedpkg update" is "Here you write the reason for this update" or so. This causes some extra work since the text always must be deleted, and also because the user often has to duplicate the text in the change log in the description
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Update a package
2. invoke fedpkg update
The description field has a useless default value.
The default value should be taken from changelog.
The patch uses the clog created by the update, If it's just one line, it's used as the default description. If more than one line, these lines are presented
for the user user so she can copy-paste from them when doing the update.
