A subset of the reports of no-upstream-changelog for the archive. Unfortunately the full list is too long, so only 1024 instances are listed on this page. At most 3 tags are shown per package. If you need the full list of tags, please download the lintian.log.gz file and extract the data you need.
The extended description of this tag is:
The package does not install an upstream changelog file. If upstream provides a changelog, it should be accessible as /usr/share/doc/pkg/changelog.gz.
It's currently unclear how best to handle multiple binary packages from the same source. Some maintainers put a copy of the upstream changelog in each package, but it can be quite long. Some include it in one package and add symlinks to the other packages, but this requires there be dependencies between the packages. Some only include it in a "central" binary package and omit it from more ancillary packages.
Refer to Debian Policy Manual section 12.7 (Changelog files) for details.
