Thanks Julien, I will see once the package will be uploaded.

I'm working on the other lintian warnings (man pages).

Well, I have no good reason to use it. We really should update our
workflow to see who works on what.
It was once said that it's up to the uploader to maintain the changelog
because it's automatically generated by git (I suppose git-dch).
So, when I work on a package, I don't update the changelog, to not
interfere with the uploader work.

Am I wrong ? What is the "good" way of doing it ?
