This bug was fixed in the package ubuntu-dev-tools - 0.126

ubuntu-dev-tools (0.126) unstable; urgency=low

  [ Evan Broder ]
  * ubuntutools.misc: Add a new "system_distribution_chain", which returns
    a list starting with the current distribution and working its way up
    each distribution's parent.
  * ubuntutools.misc: Add a function to find the distribution that
    used a given release codename.
  * backportpackage, doc/backportpackage.1: Accept codenames from any
    distribution in the parenting chain. Makes it possible to, e.g.,
    backport from Debian. (LP: #703099)
  * ubuntutools.subprocess:
    - New drop-in replacement wrapper module around subprocess that
      backports the restore_signals kwarg and defaults close_fds=True
    - Switch everything previously using subprocess to use
      ubuntutools.subprocess instead (LP: #785854)

  [ Stefano Rivera ]
  * ubuntutools.archive: Display any errors rmadison emits, rather than
    guessing at the cause. (LP: #788447)
  * sponsor-patch: Use dch --release instead of --edit to work with

  [ Dustin Kirkland ]
  * doc/lp-project-upload.1, lp-project-upload:
    - add support for optionally specifying files containing the changelog
      and release notes for the release
    - allows scripts to avoid the interactive editors

  * lp-project-upload:
    - fix a bug when new milestone wasn't specified (LP: #797170)
