    $ vim /usr/share/doc/<foo>/changelog.Debian.gz
really such a hassle?

Or, if you prefer
    $ zcat /usr/share/doc/<foo>/changelog.Debian.gz | $PAGER

vim will automatically gunzip a .gz file when you tell it to open it.
zcat is just like cat, except it gunzips the file first.


Consider what God has done:
    Who can straighten what He has made crooked?
