[arch-general] Viewing changelogs for packages

I'd like to view the change logs of new packages when new updates are 

I see pacman -Qc would display a changelog of a package installed.
It seems that 95% of the packages(on my system anyway) don't have a changelog.

Is pacman -Qc supposed to show upstream changelogs for a package or is it 
really for arch specific changes to a package? Is there plans to include 
changelogs in packages more in future?

How do other users follow the changelog of particular package? 
I suppose just visit upstream package site's website and read what's new?
