I would recommend to use dput from dput-ng instead of plain old
dput, because that will catch the discrepancy between the distribution
in the changelog and the changes file. It prints a nice error message
explaining the problem, before the package is even uploaded.
(I accidentally stumbled over that yesterday, due to sbuild -d sid
but changelog having unstable in it.)
