Well in most cases the changelog will just contain the same "update to x.y.z"
For some packages the changes just aren't  worth listing.
For example each iw release only contain minor changes, people that
really care about them know how to look it up.
I could also just add "Small fixes and minor updates from upstream"
but that's the same as "Update to x.y.z".
Copying the upstream changelog, that must people do not understand
does not help either.
