Then please use a changelog entry for each change, such as

  * New Upstream Version (closes: #176227)
    - Fixes error after updating user entry (closes: #188308)
    - Fixes segfaults on connect (closes: #90276)

If you don't do this, the original bug submitters will see a bug has
been fixed, but probably not remember what the bug was, especially if he
or she filed multiple bugs for the package.  Furthermore, it's a real
pain to have to look at the BTS, and then search through the upstream
changelog to find the corresponding fix.

This should be described in the developer's reference (as if anyone
actually follows it).

Poems... always a sign of pretentious inner turmoil.
