That's a general consensus about not using changelog as a BTS management
tool. That's an improper use, see some old flames about similar
cases. And it generally causes confusion in bug submitters' mind:
how many of them knows the difference between a fixed and a closed bug?
A brief note about NMU changes incorporation in changelog
and closing those bugs in BTS by hand is more correct IMO.
