Get one of the fetchmail or cyrus "-1" packages, and read the changelog.
IMHO that's how it should be done (re. new upstream).
As for the lilo changelog entry, I do think it should have been a bit more
verbose, since the bug being closed was a grave one. Just the bug title
would have been enough information, though IMHO.
I am disturbed that Lazarus Long actually just went overboard this time,
instead of being completely wrong, AND going overboard :(
