Uploaded; thanks for your contribution to Debian. Since the package is
new, it will end up in the NEW queue. Here it will wait for the
FTP-masters to give it a second review.
You may want to consider making a separate upstream changelog for the
next version. There some of the entries in the current debian changelog
that I am somewhat conflicted about.
An example would be 0.1.4-1: "Minor modifications for better code
safety". I do not see how that (directly) affects the user of the
package; but that particular line could be added to an upstream changelog.
You might also want to "attach" relevant upstream changes to "New
upstream release" bullet, like:
triggerhappy (0.1.4-1) unstable; urgency=low
* New upstream release
- Support for new --clear command line
* fix "Provides" in init script
-- Stefan Tomanek [...]
There is a "Best Practices for (Debian) changelogs" in the Developer's
Reference that might be a good read.
