       Dpkg::Changelog::Entry::Debian - represents a Debian changelog entry


       This object represents a Debian changelog entry. It implements the
       generic interface Dpkg::Changelog::Entry. Only functions specific to
       this implementation are described below.


       $regex_header, $regex_trailer are two regular expressions that can be
       used to match a line and know whether it's a valid header/trailer line.

       The matched content for $regex_header is the source package name ($1),
       the version ($2), the target distributions ($3) and the options on the
       rest of the line ($4). For $regex_trailer, it's the maintainer name
       ($1), its email ($2), some blanks ($3) and the timestamp ($4).


       my @items = $entry->get_change_items()
           Return a list of change items. Each item contains at least one
           line.  A change line starting with an asterisk denotes the start of
           a new item.  Any change line like "[ Raphal Hertzog ]" is treated
           like an item of its own even if it starts a set of items attributed
           to this person (the following line necessarily starts a new item).

       my @errors = $entry->check_header()
       my @errors = $entry->check_trailer()
           Return a list of errors. Each item in the list is an error message
           describing the problem. If the empty list is returned, no errors
           have been found.

           Normalize the content. Strip whitespaces at end of lines, use a
           single empty line to separate each part.


       my @closed_bugs = find_closes($changes)

       Takes one string as argument and finds "Closes: #123456, #654321"
       statements as supported by the Debian Archive software in it. Returns
       all closed bug numbers in an array.
