Wrong - all the sponsor has to do is use '-v2.25-0 -sa'. dpkg-genchanges
collates all Closes: entries in whichever versions the maintainer
chooses to include by using the -v option. All bugs listed in
the .changes file will be closed by that upload. '-sa' might not be
essential in this specific case but as the other changes will need a new
upload to mentors, the actual version will be 2.26-2 and then '-sa' will

dh_install is preferred because if anyone needs to customise the build
using DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS, dh_install will use those options, install will
not. This means that a customised build has to patch debian/rules
instead of just setting an environment variable.
