Ok, I will add this. BTW, it is in one of the patches that I sent

Okay, I will upload 0.99.19~pre143-1 as in the git repository and start -2
as you suggest However, please, next time hold on with the tagging until the
version is actually uploaded.

I sent you two patches in my last message. The first
(standards-version.diff) contained a typo that is fixed above
("debian.control" instead of "debian/control"). The second
(override-mispelling-xwindows.diff) introduces the Lintian override.

I do not see a problem with changing the trailer line, provided that the
distribution is clearly tagged "UNRELEASED". I use dpkg-dev-el for editing
debian/changelog (yes, it's Emacs, but there nothing equivalent for JED :-)
and it updates the trailer line each time I do C-c/C-e and C-c/C-c (it is
very handy, actually).

It is a matter of style. I prefer mine, because it is clear which files
have been changed. However, as ususal, YMMV.
BTW, I do not forgot the S in "Build-depend". It is a verb. If I follow
your remark, I will have to write "Adds", "Calls", and "Bumps" in the
changelog entries, which I do not want.

This is what I did locally in my git repository (hence the two patches that
I sent previously).

Thanks for the tutorial. I will try the refs/heads/rl-0.99.19 option above,
since this seems to interfere less with the way you are managing the
repository at Alioth.

What do you mean exactly?
