One thing I do in my repository is use the debian changelog entry as the
commit message for the new version of the package. This does have the
potential to bloat the repository, especially if the changelog entry is
long, since it will be duplicated in every file that was modified for
that revision. But it makes for much more interesting browsing of the
cvs repository, without having to reference the changelog to figure out
what every change was. Just something you might want to consider.
