Afaict these bugs are not severity serious, shipping the upstream
changelog in usd/changelog.gz is not a »"must" or "required"
directive« in policy. They are wishlist or minor.

I read Ulrichs statement as a hint that we have more important
things to do, because we have a big number of RC bugs to fix.

Anyway imho it were ok to file the bugs if one checked for each
package if NEWS.gz indeed contained a upstream changelog *before*
filing the bug.
