Package: developers-reference
Version: 3.3.9
Severity: normal

looking at Colin Watson message [1] the section regarding the acknowledging
of an NMU is outdated.
With the new BTS version tracking if a package has been NMU'ed it is
supposed that the author of the NMU closes the bug directly so from the
maintainer is only required  the incorporation of the changes in its
copy of the sources.

I propose the change of this part:

Once this is done, you have to close the bugs that have been tagged
fixed by the NMU. The easiest way is to use the -v option of
dpkg-buildpackage, as this allows you to include just all changes since
your last maintainer upload. Alternatively, you can close them manually
by sending the required mails to the BTS or by adding the required
closes: #nnnn in the changelog entry of your next upload.

in something like this:

Once this is done, you have to check if the bug has been already closed
by the author of the NMU, in such case you have nothing else to do, in the
other case you have to close the bugs that have been tagged fixed
by the NMU. The easiest way is to use the -v option of dpkg-buildpackage,
as this allows you to include just all changes since your last maintainer
upload. Alternatively, you can close them manually by sending the required
mails to the BTS or by adding the required closes: #nnnn in the changelog
entry of your next upload.
