Proposal for Lenny: Please avoid duplicated changelogs for binary packages sharing the same source package


I find it wasteful to install the same changelogs (both Debian and
upstream) in binary packages which share the same sources. Why not
have symlinks in place of these and perhaps an extra /usr/share/doc
directory named the same as the source package in case a binary
package of the same name doesn't exist.

Maybe this is not the right time but then maybe someone should
convince me that I'm proposing a bad idea.
