If you decide to break it into two modes (say,
debian-changelog-mode and debian-changelog-view-mode) then I
guess it'd make sense to put -view-mode in a user package. But
debian-changelog-mode is the reason I installed dpkg-dev-el (I
didn't realize until now that it provides other features too), so
I'd prefer to see it include debian-changelog-mode. I mean,
that's a mode that developers who use dpkg use, so dpkg-dev-el is
a logical place for it.
Just my $.02.
