Believe me, it is :)  And it's something the distributor should take
care about.  The GNU user wants something like

    less $(rpm -ql gnumeric | grep NEWS)

My wish is other GNOME modules should provide up-to-date NEWS files,
too.  Fro reference please try:

    info standards Documentation 'NEWS File'

BTW, I don't think it's a good idea to install ChangeLog files via %doc;
sometimes you see the first level ChangeLog file installed -- but the
second level ChangeLog files are oftenmuch more interesting
(cf. emacs/{lisp,src}/ChangeLog).
