No, dch is a script that helps you add a proper new entry to the changelog file. Odd, it should have been included in the devscript package I added to the 1st apt-get command...

Evidently :) I admit I didn't consider the possibility you'd change into the debian directory to edit these files ...

Good to see it worked for you.

Using packages is a bit more work, but if one can use a pre-existing source package the margin for errors becomes a lot smaller, and you can (much more) safely install into your system, without losing (all) the benefits of automatically pushed updates.
