You're asking the wrong people.  We cannot make manual tweaks to pages
that are automatically generated for our packages.

There is a long-standing problem that uploads to security.debian.org do
not get their changelogs published on metadata.ftp-master.debian.org. 
So long as a stable suite also gets point releases, all uploads
accepted by security.debian.org are also copied to ftp-
master.debian.org and the changelog is published shortly afterward.

Since wheezy will not have any more point releases, this process has
been disabled for wheezy-security.  *All* updates to wheezy-security
now have the exact same problem.
