Bug#1069697: lintian: debian-changelog-line-too-short CVEs

Richard Lewis dixit:

>would it make a difference if the somewhat ambiguous line "CVEs" was
>changed to "Fixes the following CVEs:" ?

It’s very much not ambiguous, as the entire entry is a list of
fixes, that’d be reducing the signal:noise ratio (besides this
part of the changelog is copy-pasted from the upstream release

I find that lintian is overly opinionated here. I could agree,
were this just a single line (given the tag’s stated purpose),
but not for multi-line or lists.

Solange man keine schmutzigen Tricks macht, und ich meine *wirklich*
schmutzige Tricks, wie bei einer doppelt verketteten Liste beide
Pointer XORen und in nur einem Word speichern, funktioniert Boehm ganz
hervorragend.		-- Andreas Bogk über boehm-gc in d.a.s.r
