- * Added a bug that resolves an incompatibility with the gcl debian is currently
- shipped with. (closes: bug#853787)
+ * Resolved a bug gcl has introduced after 16.12.2-1 was published.
+ (closes: bug#853787)
Sorry for nitpicking, but this one is wronger than the old one. Before,

The new wording effectively says just "fixed a bug".
* Fix an incompatibility with current versions of gcl. (Closes: #853787)
