Hmm, it was my understanding that we were going to do this (at least
where possible, in preference to individual commits) at the merge
proposal level instead — these usually have a commit message attached to
them and describe changes at a more coarse-grained level than the
individual commit in a manner which, to me at least, is more suitable
for the Debian changelog. I also then don't have to think about the fact
that every commit will end up in d/changelog.

As someone in the Touch team that requested this, it is my understanding and the text above doesn't mention the contrary to being just the merge commit.
