Default Reordering in package changelogs (was rawhide report: 20100129 changes)

Looks like whatever generates this report is reordering items in the
changelog relative to the %changelog in the specfile, but in some
surprising ways; is this a known issue?

Normally the items in a %changelog are in order most-recent through
least-recent.

But in this report, see e.g. how 2.2-9 appears, then 2.2-10:

Likewise 2.0.78-15 then 2.0.78-16:

Up to that point, it looks like a reversal.

Here's where it gets weird:
0.6.10-1 then 0.6.10-2 then 0.6.9-4 then 0.6.9-2 seems an arbitrary
ordering:

And here's another one with a non-monotonic ordering:

Any ideas? Known problem?

Thanks
