well... we don't really make use of the changelogs in the specfile.  I
guess there's some format info someone's assuming, that we don't use in
those cases where there are updates.  I dont see "version number"
information in any of our .spec (usually .spec.sed in version control)
files based on a very cursory glance.

we count on the change history from bzr instead, for our own uses.

so maybe there's a procedure step that could be added, but I suspect
most packages of ours are "broken" this way, even if that brokenness is
non-standard stuff to begin with.
