I don't know this book. Are you trying to build gnash based on the
Debian Sid sources ("apt-get source gnash")? In that case you will find
the Debian changelog at gnash-0.8.3/debian/changelog.

Also, have a look at the debchange utility from the "devscripts"
package, a great help to update Debian changelogs. (Debchange will
respect your VISUAL or EDITOR setting, so you can choose to use nano
with it.)

dch -i
dch -v version
man dch for more information.

BTW, 3.1 is old. We are now at 4.0.
