Bug#593611: Acknowledgement (debian-policy: Clarify whose signature should go in debian/changelog (4.4))

Argh, I misused reportbug, apparently. Here is the actual report:

Policy 4.4 currently says:

> The maintainer name and email address used in the changelog should be
> the details of the person uploading this version. They are not
> necessarily those of the usual package maintainer.

One person I'm sponsoring misread this and put my name in the changelog,
since I'm the one actually doing the upload. I can't think of a better
wording, though. Perhaps a footnote is enough?
