On storing the debian/changelog file in the librarian, how would that be done? Assuming each new upload only tacks on new entries and thus only storing the diff has some potential problems. As far as I know, it is possible to have the entry of a specific version change between uploads (fixing a typo in a bug number for example), though frowned upon.

Another case is where there are two lines of development on a package, and one supercedes the other. One uploaded to experimental and when it is time to upload to unstable the other branch is chosen.

I'll have to dig up some solid evidence on this, but my mind seems to think having seen this happen in Debian.
