Hi Oliver, thanks for checking.

That's not what I meant though:

Yes, they are. So I *do* have *a* changelog.

But the chromium-browser files are not real files, and they point to the wrong files, making it harder to find the chromium-browser changelog.

I wrote:

```
$ ls -l /usr/share/doc/chromium-browser/changelog.Debian.gz
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 51 feb 25 15:56
  /usr/share/doc/chromium-browser/changelog.Debian.gz
  -> ../chromium-codecs-ffmpeg-extra/changelog.Debian.gz
```

Checked again today with the newest 73.0.3683.75-0ubuntu0.18.04.1:

```
$ ls -l /usr/share/doc/chromium-browser/changelog.Debian.gz -l
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 51 mrt 12 21:59
  /usr/share/doc/chromium-browser/changelog.Debian.gz
  -> ../chromium-codecs-ffmpeg-extra/changelog.Debian.gz
```

It's not my system, it's really the .deb file:

```
$ dpkg-deb -c chromium-browser_73.0.3683.75-0ubuntu0.18.04.1_amd64.deb |
    grep changelog
lrwxrwxrwx root/root 0 2019-03-12 21:59
  ./usr/share/doc/chromium-browser/changelog.Debian.gz ->
  ../chromium-codecs-ffmpeg-extra/changelog.Debian.gz
```

In my system, I don't have chromium-codecs-ffmpeg-extra (only without "-extra"), so the links are dead.

Regards,
Walter
