So changes made in packaging are relevant, as well as "other"
changes -- which caninclude significant changes upstream. The bottom
line is not one of NIH -- the changelog should contain enough
information for the target audience to decide whether or not to
install the upgrade.
Changes made in new versions certainly affect my decisions on
whether or not I wan the new packages, based on materiel
provided by apt-listchanges.
