That's *very* useful, too. And that would save people a lot of work when
tracking problem causes, etc. It will not kill adding a few more details
when closing a bug, and that makes the changelog much more useful.
This is the way I do:

  * New upstream release
  - it seems like the loooong CC is not a problem anymore
    (Closes: #182003)
  - IMAP has gone through a lot of work, so I believe this should
    be fixed. Also, this version is supposed to fix the 'io blocking'
    thingy. (Closes: #164101)

Damn, it evens helps the submitter to understand what problem has
been fixed when he receives the notification.
