Yes, we need to add debian/changelog data into UDD. (Patches welcomed)

Once this is done, we could write a "contributions search tool", that,
given a name and an email address, would scan data sources for
contributions.  (bugs, uploads, mentions in changelog, etc)

Something else that would be interesting to store in UDD is the full bug
logs, as it would allow to list the comments that someone posted to
bugs. That's expensive, but maybe we could only store a subset of
information, like the From, Date, and Subject fields.
