I strongly disagree. As I said in my original mail, the whole point of
such a potential policy would be that users *should not* need to peruse
through upstream changelogs and whatnot. More often than not, they tend
to be very technical in nature and/or contain a significant amount of
relatively insignificant commits (such as porting to a new third-party
library API, build script fixes, etc.); and this - to me - contradicts
Fedora's goal of showing how helpful and user-friendly FOSS can truly
be.
