Yes, darcs changelog is a start, but it doesn't provide the kind of
summary people usually want. 

Some people write summary changelogs though not many. One fully
automatic thing would be a package differ, that looks at all api changes
between versions of a package, or if they're only code changes then
notes which functions changed. It's not full detail but it'd give
package users an indication of whether it's a big api change or only a
tweak in one data file.

We'll need a package api diff program to help enforce the package
versioning policy.
