I think this is not quite the right approach.  I would suggest

 * Delete dpkg/ChangeLog.  This file is useless.

 * When we want complete and accurate commit history, use git log.

 * Ensure that debian/changelog contains human-readable and redacted
   information.  For simple changes `debcommit' does the right thing.
   For more complex changes, perhaps ones which consist of several
   commits, the debian/changelog can be written with coherent
   information by hand.
