Hi Teus,

No problem at all on my end.  Thank you for getting everything corrected
so quickly.

There are two additional items that need to be addressed before we can

 - the debian/changelog causes lintian to complain (see attached)
 - we will need a transitional dummy package for bibledit-gtk

I should have realized earlier that a transitional package would be
needed.  Basically, we want to make sure that users don't end up with
orphaned packages on their systems.  Right now if someone has
bibledit-gtk installed, when the new bibledit package becomes available,
the user will not see that it is the logical upgrade from bibledit-gtk.
The way to handle this is to add the bibledit-gtk package back to
debian/control and make it depend on bibledit.  That will ensure that
the right thing happens.  We will need to have that transitional package
in place until after the release of buster, at which time it can be

Please make sure that you have tested the install -> upgrade cycle from
the bibledit-gtk 4.9 packages to the new bibledit 5.0 packages.  That
will ensure that upgrades work properly for users.

Also, one additional question: is unstable the intended target for this
upload?  Since we are so close to release of stretch, it might be better
to target the first upload to experimental.
