P debian-changelog-line-too-short

All reports of debian-changelog-line-too-short for the archive. The extended description of this tag is:

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.
