That's what I would have thought, but:

        $ dch -r -D jessie
        dch warning: Recognised distributions are: unstable, testing, stable,
        oldstable, experimental, {testing-,stable-,oldstable-,}proposed-updates,
        {testing,stable,oldstable}-security, wheezy-backports, jessie-backports and UNRELEASED.
        Using your request anyway.
        dch: Did you see that warning?  Press RETURN to continue...
I don't see any bugs about not accepting Jessie here and if it weren't
deliberate I'd expect older releases to be listed (i.e. it's not just
that devscripts hadn't caught up with Jessie yet).
