Maybe this doesn't qualify as official, but here you go (unnecessary 
rows removed):

Date: Fri, 20 Oct 2006 15:56:42 -0700
Source: firefox
Version: 2.0+0dfsg-0ubuntu1
Distribution: edgy
Changed-By: Matt Zimmerman <mdz at>
  firefox (2.0+0dfsg-0ubuntu1) edgy; urgency=low
    * Bump version to 2.0 (no upstream changes from rc3)
    * browser/components/search/nsSearchService.js
      - Set MOZ_OFFICIAL to "official", distributionID to "com.ubuntu"
    * debian/branding: new subdirectory with images
    * debian/rules:
      - build: uudecode and substitute images in source tree, use 
        instead of debian/firefox.png
      - clean: restore images in source tree, remove uudecoded versions
