I noticed a few weeks ago that some changelogs of packages that had been updated were not available (and still aren't). "Not available" means that they're not accessible using aptitude (Shift+C) and a web browser just shows error 404.


(and some libs that said packages depend on)

I know that not all available packages have changelogs but the ones I mentioned have had until recently. Though the above packages are linked particularly to Ubuntu Hardy, the changelogs of all other LTS versions (Lucid and Precise) are missing, too.

The subject says "many" and not "all" changelogs are missing. The changelog of linux-libc-dev is available:

I opened a discussion regarding this topic on the German Ubuntuusers Forum:

I also sent an e-mail to the mailing list ubuntu-devel-discuss (on June 4th) but obviously the mail wasn't forwarded to the list. That's why I opened this topic.
