Sorry, I'm not sure I understand what you mean about the changes made by me? I
use my @debian.org address for changelog entries, etc. As for the RFA, I think
what Paul meant was that you actually forgot to mail email@example.com to
actually retitle the bug to an ITA. Then just close the ITA bug # in the changelog.
Does that help any?
