True, and for some of the really minor stuff lintian complains about, it probably isn't even worth mentioning in the changelog. > Seriously, please find something more productive to do than making > these never-ending complaints about changelog entries.

Well, I'm trying not to rehash old complaints (at least when I Cc d-d) because anyone that's paying attention has already heard them before. I thought this was an interesting case though, because at first at seemed like a valid entry, but when I thought about it for a second, a dim light flickered and I realized it really could referring to any kind of bug. I really enjoy reading a well-written changelog (and I'm subscribed to d-d-changes so I tend to read them all), so I'm interested in improving the quality of ones that aren't quite up-to-par. If there's a consensus that it's futile or pointless effort, I'll readily stop. -- Poems... always a sign of pretentious inner turmoil.
