I do this with quite a few of my packages.  In many cases, the tarball I
release has a file named ChangeLog that is automatically maintained for
me by tla.  It is far more detailed than a debian/changelog file usually
is, and contains details of interest to plenty of people besides Debian
users -- but may also be of interest to Debian users.
