I know I am annoying, but could every uploader please use debcomit -R -r to do
a release commit?
It is kind of a PITA to trace a file movement among .install files if the log
does show no indication as to when what version was uplaoded to the archives.
When using -r -R debcommit will try to compose a sensible commit message,
which in case of no changes would be
but even more importantly it adds a tag to that commit making it more
In bzr qlog this looks like
http://people.ubuntu.com/~apachelogger/screenshots/snapshot001.png which is of
course super useful.
Regular commiters should also prefer debcommit over bzr's, more than pitiful
attemts to make a sensible commit msg out of the changelog, or manual writing.
In most cases debcommit will properly detect which entries are new and create
a somewhat sensible and well formated commit message from that.
So in general: please "man debcommit", and use when appropriate.
