after running the following command, I think that the transition was

Thanks. I also wondered, which packages did not contain the tag at all (but
should because they are obviousely provided in a repository:
$ find . -name control | grep trunk/debian | xargs grep -l Vcs | sort > has_vcs
$ find . -name control | grep trunk/debian | sort > all
$ diff has_vcs all
I know that I'm guilty for missing the tags - that's why I thought about
watching for it. So we should change these as well ...
I do not know how to update the changelogs easily, so I decided that
this step can be skipped as the change is informational only and should
not modify the behaviour of the source or binary packages.
I agree that the atempt to automatically edit the changelog would be
error prone. So perhaps maintainers of packages should have a look into
their svn checkouts and perhaps mention it in the changelog manually.
I agree there is no real harm done when this change is not mentioned
Thanks for your effort
