Thanks Angelos,

I have a suggestion on the deb packaging script too. Right now it
automatically generates a changelog (very good) although by default the
target ubuntu release is defined to the one used to do the release, so for
example it's impossible to release for xenial from a trusty machine (as I
do) forcing us to copy the packages in launchapd.

It would be good to edit the changelog before doing the dput in lauchpad. I
couldn't find an option for git-dch /gbp-dch to do that unfortunately.
Maybe some of you knows if is possible.
