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.
