Re: how to manage d/changelog for updated but not yet sponsored package

* Ben Finney <ben+debian@benfinney.id.au>, 2012-02-13, 13:40:
I want to keep trace of it in the d/changelog by keeping my first version entry and adding a second entry. Can I do that ? Will it confuse some Debian robots ?

It's fine. I consider uploading the package to ‘mentors.debian.net’ a release of the package, since at that point interested people (e.g. reviewers) can rely on it, and the version should refer uniquely to what I uploaded at that time.

Be aware, though, that some people disagree (on the grounds that it's not a new version until it enters Debian).

I believe that vast majority of sponsors disagree.
