Please beware that the changelog is primarily a changelog.

I would expect only wishlist bugs requesting the package to package the 
newer release to be referenced like the above.

I recommend to highlight the actual changes in the upstream release that 
caused each bug to get resolved. Like this:

   * New upstream release.
     + Fixed ssh upload speed (Closes: #301732)
     + Avoid crashing if save fails (Closes: #192882)
     + Fix regex in search'n'replace (Closes: #420437)

Please note that the text in the above example is *not* just the titles 
of the bugs but rewording to explain the changes solving them.

Great to see some new care for this package!
