Bug#536434: [checks/changelog-file] Do not check debian-changelog-file-is-a-symlink for Ubuntu packages

Package: lintian
Version: 2.2.13

Ubuntu allows symlinked changelog files. So please do not report
debian-changelog-file-is-a-symlink if the package is an Ubuntu package.

I tried to write a patch for it, but Perl does not like me (or the other
way round). The check rule should look like

if (-l 'changelog' && !($version =~ /$UBUNTU_REGEX/ or $distribution =~ /$UBUNTU_REGEX/)) {
    tag "debian-changelog-file-is-a-symlink", "";
    return 0;

but I don't know how to determine $distribution.
