Eh? Who doesn't? The uploader presumably wouldn't have any problem
knowing it. dinstall shouldn't have any problem either, as the .changes
is signed by the uploader by definition. Conceivably, I could go through
the -devel-changes log to find it out myself, which would be hard, but
that would be a good reason to stick it in the .deb and the Packages file.
