That happened because we have different work styles.  In the other
collaborative packaging projects I am involved, we always have a sane
trailer line in SCM, such that uploaders can do the release straight away
from the repository.  You once raised the objection that the trailer line
should not be changed before the actual release in order to avoid polution
of the changesets.

Note that I am not criticizing your approach.  Both approaches have its pros
and cons.

No problem.  It really does not hurt, in particular because the package is
in experimental.  It is just, er, a bit stupid :-(
