P debian-changelog-line-too-short

The given line of the latest changelog entry appears to contain a very terse entry.

This can make it hard for others to understand the changelog entry. Please keep in mind that:

* It is not uncommon that people read changelog entries that are more than a decade old to understand why a change was made or why a package works in a specific way. * Many users will read the changelog via apt-listchanges(1) * The information in debian/changelog is permanent.

Examples for entries that are too short include "dh 11" or simply "R³" - these could be expanded to, for example:

* Switch to debhelper compat 11. * Set Rules-Requires-Root: no.
