Frankly speaking, the only situation I have found rpm.specs useful
sofar, was to dig out the responsible maintainer of a package to get in
direct contact to him.
On the other hand, this is the very reason I have sometimes considered
leaving out my email address entirely from the specfile changelogs. I
cannot promise personal individual support for users of the packages I
maintain. Bugzillas and mailing lists are much better for that.
Back to the original topic: I think it is ok to remove the changelogs
from the packages altogether provided that a equally easily accessible
and working replacement to "rpm -q --changelog" is provided. But I
don't have ideas how to implement that right now, sorry.
