When I am viewing a PPA in Launchpad, the "Package Details" view shows me the most recent change from the changelog. Is there a way to view the entire changelog for a source package in a PPA without downloading the package?

The package browser allows changelog downloads for distribution packages. It would be quite helpful if I could do this for PPA packages as well.

It's a bug that PPA packages do not show changelog in update-manager

Have a look at this

Thanks - I didn't know about UbuntuUpdates. The changelog being missing in update-manager isn't what I'm talking about, though; I'm talking about the Launchpad web interface. – Michael Ekstrand Dec 7 '10 at 19:28
