Package: josm
Version: 0.0.svn5047+dfsg1-1
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,
JOSM has only a changelog.Debian.gz which gives just a brief mention
that it got a new tested snapshot. See for instance :-

/usr/share/doc/josm$ zcat changelog.Debian.gz | less

josm (0.0.svn5047+dfsg1-1) unstable; urgency=low

  * New tested snapshot
  * Fix wrapper script to detect newer versions of OpenJDK
    (Closes: #661942)
  * Bump Standards-Version to 3.9.3, no changes needed

But there is no way for a person to know what got
changed/added/deleted whatever in the new snapshot. It would be nice
to have a changelog.gz which tells the changes between the two
versions similar to say for e.g. like leafpad does :-

/usr/share/doc/leafpad$ ls
changelog.Debian.gz  changelog.gz  copyright  README

As can be seen there is a changelog.Debian.gz which tells/shares about
the packaging diffs that were made for each release as well as a
changelog file which tells/shares what got changed or added to the
newest release in leafpad. It would be nice if we can have that.I know
I could put it as wishlist but this IMHO is really needed to know what
the changes are.
