Dunno if this is still needed.
I think it is, it's at least very convenient to have the full history
somewhere easily accessible (and to me that means without having to
use special commands to retrieve them). And it's not very nice to
bloat the package meta-info with all that history.
We started to misuse .changes file to contain changes from upstream, not
only the changes of the package itself. AFAIK all these contents are
being transcribed into %changelog section of specfile, so the bloat
already _IS_ there.
That's no reason to block our way back to reduced %changelog sections.
I'm not so much worried about the content of the log (only local changes,
only package changes, or all changes), but about the time frame. I want
to have/retain an automatic mean of generating the (say) last two years of
.changes into the package meta-data, which means generating the %changelog
