Interesting, it seems you're correct. It looks like the only way to
know this, though, is to look at the changelog.proto file. None of the
pacman documentation alludes to this fact, so I always assumed it was
upstream changes.

Considering this is the case, I'm with Peter - why not just
automatically update the changelog from svn commit messages? Otherwise
I'm having a hard time believing that packagers will ever start
writing them...
