Happy to be helpful :-)

As you may already know, the typical way for users to make use of the 
NEWS file is to install apt-listchanges.

...and a trick for you as Debian developer: do a "dpkg-reconfigure 
apt-listchanges" and enable listing of both news and changelogs, and set 
it to ask before continuing.  That way you follow the detailed changes 
of *all* packages on your own system every time you update packages, so 
you notice trends of doing things smarter, which you might want to adopt 
in the packages you are involved in maintaining.
