Here is the full diff:

We prefer that packages that are not uploaded have "UNRELEASED" as distribution
name.  So I had to set it to unstable when I uploaded (and committed a tag, and
commtited the build logs in the repository).  Doing this I could have either
kept the changelog signature of Carlos with the old date, which would be
inaccurate, or change the date, but I do not feel changing the date on somebody
elses signature.  I think that team uploads are more natural than sponsoring
when maintaining a source package in a team's VCS.

Have a nice day,
