I was not quite clear indeed!
echo "svn2cl failed to generate the ChangeLog. See
http://trac.networkupstools.org/projects/nut/timeline" > ChangeLog

hmm, I don't think that failing is necessary here.
putting the above msg into ChangeLog is fine. also echo'ing it would be a
the cherry for maintainability would be an "UP_TO_VERSION" param that get
the revision number, using something like:
svn log -v -q --stop-on-copy svn://svn.debian.org/nut/tags/v2.4.3
