In packages like this, I think it's wise to keep packaging-related
changes in debian/changelog, as well as noting changes that cause
bugs to be closed. Toplevel ChangeLog should have everything else.
dpkg-cross should probably drop the pretense of being a Debian-native
You'll note that my CVS checkin logs are identical to the ChangeLog
entries -- I use a script to create a changelog entry, edit the
entry, and then another script to check in the files listed. This
has the added benefit of making it possible to (easily) selectively
check in a large number of files spread around the tree.
