Hi Bjoern,

I don't think this was acceptable.

That's fine in a trial branch, but not in master. At the least, you
should have asked the team first.

Even if it were OK, it should also have gone in a commit of its own,
with a proper explanation in the commit message. Not slipped in with a
commit message of "updated pkg new upstream release".

Please understand that this kind of thing is creating work for Lars. It
delayed an upload to unstable by at least two or three more days. He
could have spent that time fixing bugs instead.

I understand that this was back in 2014, and the other occasions I've
complained about are also far in the past. Please continue to no longer
push this kind of thing without asking for review first.
