Perhaps it was just me because I expected a changelog entry besides the
changes (which where actually in the repository). Due to some reason I
do not remember I found another clone on my harddisk which contained an
*uncommited* changelog entry - perhaps I have worked together with
Christophe on this on the Debian Science workshop and just forget to
commit. Whatever, this issue seems to be solved.
I also incorporated the changes of a previous NMU which was not commited
into Git. Unfortunately as a Git beginner I had no idea how to do this
properly with the correct history / tag magic and so I simply pushed the
changes in to have no regression in the package. If somebody would
volunteer for the tagging of the NMU that would be fine for me.

May be - how could I know?

Finally it was probably me - but it is good if you have something to
shout about for the moment. ;-)
