I was fairly confident we could extract and build this from the 
changelog's of released packages, but thats not going to happen since 
they are not very consistend and dont even go back to the earlier 
releases. eg in 5.[0123] quite a few pkgs dont carry this metadata at all.

So, short of someone finding a way to get this info; sitting down and 
typing it all up, it looks hard to get going.

With C6 however, all pkgs so far seem to have this metadata in the 
changelog's. So its looking a lot better.
