There are times when I do have the time to upgrade often, read the 
mailing lists, browse through the forums and file some bugs.

And there are times when I don't have it. Probably I should just disable 
the testing repo for times like that.

I was just curious if there is any single place where, for example, 
changelogs for packages can be found.

Maybe it could be created automatically from SVN log messages.

(Yeah, I know, I can implement it if I really want it.)
