Short answer:
  vim -o /usr/share/doc/$packagename/{NEWS,README}.Debian.gz

Long answer:
As you may know, Debian provides a file named NEWS.Debian[1], installed
in the package's doc directory (the one for moinmoin
is /usr/share/doc/python-moinmoin/NEWS.Debian.gz). It summarizes major
changes in a package. It *is* meant for system admins.

|moin (1.7.0) unstable; urgency=low
|  * New upstream release, requiring content migration.
|    Automated migration:
|    1. Add your MoinMoin wikis to /etc/moin/wikilist, and invoke
|       moin-mass-migrate as root
|    3. Let packaging routines mass-migrate as needed in the future
|    Manual migration:
|    See /usr/share/doc/moinmoin-common/README.Migration(.gz).

You should file a bug the Debian bug tracking system, If you think the
documentation should be improved (preferably with a patch;)
