Subject: devscripts: [debchange] --team option for team uploads.
Date: Sun, 11 Jul 2010 23:19:25 +0900
[Message part 1 (text/plain, inline)]
Package: devscripts
Version: 2.10.64
Severity: wishlist
Tags: patch

Dear debchange maintainers,

There were discussions in 2009 and 2010 about “Team uploads”, briefly
summarised on the Debian wiki: ‘’.

Team uploads have been documented in the Developers reference, and Lintian has
been adapted to understand them. Here is a patch to add an option “--team” to
debchange, that turns off NMU detection and starts the changelog with:

  * Team upload.

I tried to make the modifications the less invasive as possible, so I have not
reformatted the source if the lines look like being larger than 80 characters.
Within the groups of options that have similar purposes, I tried to add the
code for team uploads just after the code for security uploads, because it is
the previous letter in the alphabet.

Please let me know of any improvement I can do to the attached patch, and if
I can commit it directly.

Have a nice day,

Charles Plessy
