That's annonying: I'm trying to have the package automatically
updated. apt-src can take care of auto-applying the local changes
during a package upgrade. However it won't be able to automatically
upgrade the version in changelog (and if it did, it would probably
conflict with the next security upgrade version).
Is there a way to automatically update a locally modified package, or
can't we avoid a manual processing?
