This is autogenerated with blends-dev (and something I didn't touch at
all). If the generated line is wrong, you probably should file a bug
against blends-dev. However, this is unrelated to the discussed change
at all.

Since debian-edu build-depends on blends-dev, it is directly affected by
an RC bug.

As I said: it was part of the development process, which needed some
communication and distributed efforts. Git is a tool to do that. No
reason to be frustrated

Yea, git push -f doesn't work. Then you always have the problem that a
wrong commit text is kept there.

This is depending on the policy: I tend to generate the changelog just
before the release.

That is ofcourse true; however we had one of the edu developers in the loop.

That is true as well.
