The changelog is designed to reflect changes in the source package
(xfree86, which produces around 30 packages similar to xdm, if not
more), not the binary packages (xdm, xserver-xfree86, etc, etc). If
you're after user-centric information, try the README.Debian; the
changelog, as I said, is designed to show what's changed in the source
package, not what changed in the binary packages.

This one gets a +1 for wontfix from me.
