OK, so now I have three different bids: 1) Distribute the brief changelog 
as "changelog.gz" and the detailed one as is; 2) distribute the detailed 
changelog as "changelog.gz" and the brief one as is; 3) only distribute the 
brief changelog in the binary package. Any more opinions?

The package in question is libmail-dkim-perl, BTW.
