No, I am not worried. I just want to know "What was fixed in this
release?" without going online.

I want debian/changelog to be a file with contents instead of

It really is no effort to write
* new upstream version:
  - escape and de-escape lines starting with a dot correctly
  (Closes: #178492)

instead of
* new upstream version. (Closes: #178492).
