Yes, in dead. We would be happy about any patch to the Debian Med
policy that might5 make this more clear. Sometimes it is hard to
describe things which are clear to the people who are comfortable with
the procedure to describe it for newcomers - so any hint is welcome.

This worked for me. So the package is in principle ready for uploading
with the one minor exception that the ITP bug is closed in some previous
version and not the latest to be uploaded one. If you ask me I would
simply strip the changelog to
prime-phylo (1.0.11-1) unstable; urgency=low
* Initial release (Closes: #684039)

by simply droping the detailed pre-Debian upload history which is not
relevant for the *debian/*changelog. Usually ftpmasters are a bit
disturbed about longish and for them uninteresting history and finally
we do have the data inside Git repository anyway. In case you insist
in keeping the longish changelog (which would be fine for me if you
might have your personal preference) I would move the Closes statement
just up to the latest changelog entry. However, in this case we should
change the target distribution from "unstable" to "UNRELEASED" to make
pretty clear that these versions never have hit the Debian mirrors.
Please either change it in the way of your choice or tell me what you
prefer and I'll do the change and upload.
Thanks for preparing the package
