Subject: apt-listchanges should try to get the changelog from control.tar first
Date: Thu, 12 Jul 2012 09:14:05 +0200
Package: apt-listchanges
Version: 2.85.11
Severity: wishlist
User: debian-dpkg@lists.debian.org
Usertags: changelog

We want to move the changelog file from /usr/share/doc/<pkg>/ to the
package's metadata (i.e. within control.tar in the .deb file). You
should thus try to look for the changelog file there before falling
back to the current location.

If you have just this file to extract, the best interface is probably
to use "dpkg-deb -I <file> changelog 2>/dev/null".

See #681289 for the corresponding policy bug.
