Not just the changelog, I bet most of the packaging has been updated
since 2003...

I don't think it's the usual procedure to contribute packaging scripts
upstream, but I could be wrong.

0.12.4-1 has been uploaded, it might not just have been built everywhere

        $ rmadison rhythmbox
         rhythmbox |   0.12.4-1 |      unstable | source, amd64, i386

You should be able to just "apt-get source rhythmbox=0.12.4-1" and build
it for yourself.
