On the other hand, this is the very reason I have sometimes considered
leaving out my email address entirely from the specfile changelogs.  I
cannot promise personal individual support for users of the packages I
maintain.  Bugzillas and mailing lists are much better for that.

Back to the original topic: I think it is ok to remove the changelogs
from the packages altogether provided that a equally easily accessible
and working replacement to "rpm -q --changelog" is provided.  But I
don't have ideas how to implement that right now, sorry.
