Now that Christian and me can also commit to aptitude's git repo, I
wonder if it's just fine to commit to these branches as it seems

Acvtually I do have some fixes for lintian warnings or trivial bug
fixes pending locally, but don't want to push before being sure not to
break your workflow with such commits.

Another workflow question is if you prefer to write all of the
changelog entry at once (seems to have happened in the past) of if
changelog entries should be made within the same commit as the changed
code? (The latter is what I'm used to and slightly prefer. But I'm
fine with the other variant, I just want to know which one I should
use. :-)
