and one more thing I learned from slomo right now:
use dpkg-buildpackage -v to include the changelogs of newer debian versions in 
the changelog (check your .changes file before uploading, if it worked the 
way expected ;))

dpkg-buildpackage call:

dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot -v2.9.9-1 -S [...]
(that will include changelog entries from 2.9.9-1 and later)
