When to drop/split/summ changelog files



Hi,
what would be the appropriate way to handle large and old 
debian changelog files. I mean there are package with very 
active upstream and years old changelog which grew and grew 
over the years.

Is there a way to handle these changelog entries which bloat 
the package and contain only information which are too old 
to be useful or is it ok if for example a changelog file 
would grow more than the source files of the package?
May split the changelog and insert an entry which points to
http://packages.debian.org/changelogs/pool/main/..../olderpackage_version-revision/changelog.html
where oldpackage_version-revision includes all information 
which is older than split date.

Regards Nico
