Where the changelog is already part of the source package and has a
sensible name, and the package calls dh_installchangelogs, it's already
installed as /usr/share/doc/*/changelog and the Debian changelog as
changelog.Debian. The only unpredictable part of that is whether upstream
enclosed one in the first place.
