Sorry, but this is a big/epic FAIL, because:
1) Use a VCS
2) You are not using a VCS? USE IT!
3) Still not using? WTF, use a VCS!
4) Get the old files with apt-get source <package> /
I am using a VCS now, but I wasn't before I removed the
changelog entries. I can't get the old files with apt-get source or
packages.debian.org, because Gurkan's packages were never in Debian. I
was given a link to them by upstream after contacting upstream asking
how I could help with the packaging. I have managed to get the old
packages from that link though, so I can get the changelogs from there.
Considering that upstream release regularly and the next release will
probably be in 2 or 3 weeks, does this warrant a new upload?
