Is comparing dates of different changelogs a serious usecase? Given that
it doesn't neccessarily bear a relation to the date of upload,
particularly if a package build is heavily tested before uploading...

Upload dates themselves are somewhere else in the system...

debian-changes-dist@l.d.o, or something like that? _That_ should be
easy to compare, because it's a single chronological log, formatted
like a set of emails.

Granted, those are not exactly upload dates... But they're prolly closer
to what you think you want to know.

Of course Pacman didn't influence us as kids. If it did,
we'd be running around in darkened rooms, popping pills and
listening to repetitive music.
