Bug#374738: developers-reference: [5.8.4] Only most recent section of changelog is considered

Package: developers-reference
Severity: normal

Section 5.8.4 should make it clear that only the most recent section of the changelog
is significant for closing bugs. So, if one uploads version -11, followed by -13 bugs closed
in the -12 section will not be picked up by daks and closed automatically.

I suppose this is the scenario addressed by the line "To close any remaining bugs that were 
fixed by your upload, email the .changes file to XXX-done@bugs.debian.org, where XXX is your 
bug number.", but I think this requires a bit more explanation.
