The upstream changelog is 77 times the size of the remaining files. If I didn't
include the Debian changelog this would look even worse.

The same to applies to the other new binary packages (I did not check the others).

The upstream changelog should just be included in at most one binary package,
for example either nova-doc or nova-common. With such a large changelog it is
not useful to include it everywhere. I'll reject the package for this reason.

I'm also wondering if it's really required to split everything into seperate
packages? There's only only a few kilobytes of content in each package and they
share the same dependencies as well.
