hmmm, sorry, I confused this with the 'put changelog and copyright on
the web' thing, but its still a very discussed feature request... I 
remeber reading some threads about this on debian-www

again, as James Treacy said, we need a clear policy for these 3 features
(copyright, changelog and web page link on web) be implemented... 
in most packages, adding the copyright file as a link on the web would
be adding the link for the upstream's page, anyway
