Perhaps this is a missunderstanding of using pdebuild: Before you
upload to official Debian you should build every package in a clean
chroot (probably using pbuilder or some similar tool) which is featuring
an `unstable` system. The rationaly is that you are uploading to
`unstable` anyway. This requirement is independent from whatever
system you are running (it might be stable or any Ubuntu version).

PLease do not missunderstand me: I was not requesting you to change
debhelper version back if you have good reasons to do (and Laszlo who
seemed to have introduced the change) might have its reasons I have
currently (=as long as we did not discussed pros and cons) no reason to
override. It just should be *documented* in changelog as changes
between the last an this version.
Moreover I think that when using debhelper 7 you need to manually care
for the hardening flags as described in the Wiki to deal with the new
hardening related lintian warnings.
