There was another hint to this possibility in this thread.  Well, yes,
it would slighly enhance things.  But it happens that someone is
forgetting a pull.  And even then, I need to check the routine-upload
script since its broken about injecting a "Team upload" if there is just
a new changelog entry.  I'm simply not motivated to spent time on this
since I see just no advantage on those commits for our teams workflow.

The Janitor changes are not exposed to the user before a package is
uploaded.  I just told that the said changes will be done before an
upload anyway.  So what exactly is the advantage to parse random
repositories on salsa and do changes that are not exposed to the user

I repeat:  Thanks a lot for the tools Janitor is running.  These are
extremely helpful.  Please do not do any automatic changes in our teams
git repositories.  They require an (admittedly slight) overhead we need
to do for no visible use.

Kind regards
