Yes.  For instance go here:

   http://packages.qa.debian.org/x/xmltv.html

If you go to the "Subscription" section, you can choose to subscribe to
various type of notification related to the package.  

See the documentation here for more details:

   http://www.debian.org/doc/manuals/developers-reference/ch-resources.en.html#s-pkg-tracking-system
