I'd love that feature too. But that either requires a damn good script, or
that everybody uses the same .changes format.
Given that we had that a rather use- and resultless discussion about a "human
readable" vs "machine parsable" format, I am not sure whether we can arrive
I like Bill's "dchanges" and use it. Do I dream when I think we could
establish the use of posting PGP signed dchanges output?
