Problem is finding out such information. It isn't easy at all for end 
users to do and sometimes doesn't exist in the upstream website. It 
would be very useful if package maintainers spend a little bit more time 
including more complete descriptions in the updates. Note that, I am 
referring here to description that is part of bodhi update and not the 
changelog which can be very brief.
