The get-changelog CGI doesn't seem to have worked for quite some time now.  I
don't think the problem is necessarily with multiple binary packages, but that
a lot of data is missing.  I am working on a replacement that uses a database
backend, but it would need to be hooked into dinstall/da-katie/whatever in
order to be most effective, and I don't expect that to happen anytime soon.
