Hi Niels,

I agree to this. Actually I forgot to add the minimal changes to the list of
exceptions. In the end, it is simpler to describe a team upload as a normal
upload made by a member of the team, rather than as a special case of NMU
with exceptions covering all the rules.

Are there other persons interested? Shall I go ahead and submit a patch to
Lintian and the Developers Reference (plus perhaps the Policy to include a
footnote containing the special changelog lines for NMU, QA, security and team

Have a nice day,
