Bug Description

Binary package hint: synaptic

When I want to see the changelog of a new package I get

'Failed to fetch the changelog for devicekit-power
URI was:'

whereas in update-manager I get pointed to the according launchpad page. I consider this a bug.
I'm using karmic beta. Maybe this behaviour changes when final is here anyway but still...

I think this bug can be confirmed: an LP link for unavailable changelogs has been added in update-manager from intrepid (version 1:0.91.6), but is still missing in synaptic's changelog viewer.
Can be marked as a wishlist; it should be easy to fix.
