how to show upstream changes to the user



Both sides in the "Lack if update information" thread are true. The
presented information about changes is almost useless for the user, but
rewriting the upstream changelogs into bodhi is a superfluous burden for
the maintainers. There is, in my opinion, a technical solution for this
issue that can make both sides happy.

And it is new "ChangeLog" tag in RPM. It should be an URL pointing to
upstream changelog and GUI package management tools can open a browser
window to show the content, like they do for the home page.

pros:
- low overhead for maintainer
- can provide complete info to the user even when he/she skips some
updates
- allows changelogs per sub-package

cons:
- slightly larger metadata
