Re: Is it allowed to remove old changelog entries?

It also doesn't allow it. Common behaviour seems to be to move the old
changelog entries in a seperate file.

Old changelog entries can be very useful at times as well, both to track
down bugs or to find other historic data (for example I've been looking for
old strace changelogs to see when I actually became a Debian developer
but unfortunately they seem to have been lost :( )
