sbuild can be used to do it, but you don't need sbuild. I think
dpkg-buildpackage would be sufficient, but you'd ideally do it in a chroot of
some sort, which sbuild manages. Another tool to do similar is pbuilder.

You're right: but not only will that entry not be in 2.12-2, it won't be in
2.12-3 either; it also doesn't show up on (e.g.) packages.debian.org (which
shows the changelog from the source package, not binary packages). So there are
few places it *does* show up.
