What about just contacting the maintainer in private? Why does this
have to be on -devel? I think it is nice to have a meaningful
changelog, but the human race and Debian will survive some
not-quite-up-to-par changelog entries. If this was a separate bug, I
would consider it "minor", and thus not worth Cc-ing to -devel.
