The problem isn't that your e-mail address was wrong in debian/changelog, the fact it was listed in Uploaders: should've stopped it being treated as an NMU. The problem is that changelog is policy-recommended to be UTF-8 whereas control isn't... Because your name has an accented character in it, katie treats them as different. There's three ways to fix this: 1) Write your name in UTF-8 in both changelog and control: Bartosz Fe\303\261ski <email@example.com> 2) Write your name in ISO-8859-1 in both changelog and control: Bartosz Fe\361ski <firstname.lastname@example.org> 3) Write an ASCIIfied version of your name in both changelog and control: Bartosz Fenski <email@example.com Personally I go for (1), others may have a different opinion. It's also worth beating people up about half-utf-8ing things, instead of going the full way and making sure the tools caught up. Scott -- Have you ever, ever felt like this? Had strange things happen? Are you going round the twist?
