Re: how to manage d/changelog for updated but not yet sponsored package
* Ben Finney <email@example.com>, 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.
