Hi,

There isn't currently something like git-dch for bzr-builddeb.

However, there are some other things that might help:

  * Commit messages are seeded from the debian/changelog entry for the change, so you don't have to repeat yourself.
  * There is a merge helper for changelogs, so they don't conflict so frequently.

I'd have no problem with a command like git-dch being included though, so if you'd
like to write one let me know.

Thanks,

James
