Bug Description

Binary package hint: bzr-builddeb

It would be nice to have an option to include the bzr log as Changelog file in the tarball.

Hello Sebastian,

I think this should be easy, I would just like a little more information first.

Firstly what mode are you running in? I guess this could be applicable to
native and split modes, and at a push export-upstream, but I wouldn't
be so happy with that.

Secondly you are not meaning debian/changelog, but just Changelog so the raw output of
bzr log is fine, is that correct?

We'd like to figure out what's causing this bug for you, but we haven't heard back from you in a while. Could you please provide the requested information? Thanks!

I would like to have a classic ./ChangeLog in my tarballs. So perhaps it is generally a bzr whish list item. It is interesting to keep the changelog as soon as the source code is exported outside of bzr.

That seems like unnecessary duplication, isn't that what debian/changelog is intended for.

I can see the use of this for e.g. "bzr export", as used by upstream projects, but it doesn't seem useful for Debian packages.
