I didn't mean that there should be one wiki page per package. Only that
there should be one wiki page (or one section on the same wiki page) for
each class of change. In the case of libext-dev, there was probably at
least 20 packages affected by that change, where the exact same patch
(add libext-dev to build-deps) was needed.
