I just made a maor-override-change@debian.org.  Simon can make an
alias so override-change will work also.

Perhaps Chapter 12 should be subdivided.  It would be useful if all
the shlibs info were collected in one place, or at least referred to.

Currently dinstall gathers all the .changes files up into the DONE
directory.  Then on Mondays it posts a summary of all the packages
that were installed.  Those are the debian-changes posts that are
titled "New Debian i386|m68k Packages".  I can make it do something
else if people want.

You should refer to the file ftp://ftp.debian.org/debian/README.non-US
which I added a few days ago.  If the site changes, we only need to
change one thing.
