10 Seconded. I sometimes read entire ChangeLogs, for example for abandoned
11 packages or packages I suspect to be abandoned, sometimes I read them
12 for fun, and so on.
14 I'm fine with shipping a trimmed down versions to users, but I think the
15 full version must be easy to access.

18 migration.
