If the upstream maintainer is slow to reply, you could always write some
simple xsl to convert this to a text changelog format. I've just scanned
through the file and it looks simple enough... Not sure if this is "too
hands on" for what a packager should be doing though.

Also, presumably upstream has some xsl tools for parsing this, otherwise
they wouldn't be forcing themselves to write so many angle brackets! :-)
