For big transitions or things like this, IMHO I think it's better to do a MBF in
the BTS if that's going to affect Debian as well. And when it's specific to one
package, it would be overkilling to put it in the wiki. The changelog should
explain it.

So I agree with you in that Ubuntu changes should be better documented, but I
don't like the wiki idea.
