The simplest "official" solution would be to offer the changelogs
in the way you do accessible via packages.debian.org/changelog:<packagename>

What do you think about that? (we should perhaps offer an abbrevation for
changelog, too, like /chlg:<packagename> or something like that.

Or we just mention your page on the packages search page.
