Hope you enjoyed your break!

IMHO (since we're nitpicking and all right now), I think uploads to
-security, -pu, and -backports shouldn't have any metadata changes at
all, just the bare minimal diff that's required to fix whatever bug
we're trying to squash. I know that the security and release teams get
frustrated when reviewing diffs that have unrelated changes, and
there's always the slight risk of introducing a regression with
unrelated changes...but the security team already ACK'ed Luca's
debdiffs, so no harm done I suppose. :)
