What ITP ? I'd like to see that changelog.

Anyway, before looking at that changelog, there are (at least) in my opinion
two options.  One, ignore or override the lintian error.  And two, start a
new history from scratch.  Which one to choose depends on whether you're
starting the packaging from scratch or you're continuing upstream's packaging
