Why is a different email used than the one in changelog?

Asked by Martin Meredith


Lists the latest changelog entry as bu <email address hidden> (the email address set as my primary address in Launchpad - so that ubuntu.com email forwards there

However, the changelog lists <email address hidden>,

I'd understand if this was the case that it always changed it for the primary email (though be rather miffed seeing as it was showing that (without a link) when I had "do not show my email address to others" on, but for the fact that later on in the changelog, it uses and links the <email address hidden> email address.

The changelog will have appended to it the same email address that you used in the changed-by header in the changes file. Soyuz does not substitute or change this in the changelog that's shown on the distribution source page.

I can only guess that you used a different email address in that header field in the earlier version.

I presume then as this was a sync request from debian that for some reason it flagged that email in the changed-by for the changes? (as it does for some reason with backports!)

If so - would it be possible to have some sort of "this is my primary "display" email - but I want email to go here - so that I can use my ubuntu.com emails properly within Stuff that's auto-generated by Launchpad?
