Package: devscripts
Version: 2.17.6+deb9u1
Severity: minor

  dch -r `foo'

dch ignores `foo', which is `TEXT', in the sense that `foo' does not
appear in the resulting changelog entry.  *But* if you don't supply
`foo' dch runs an editor.  And there's no other way to stop it doing
so because --no-edit is (unaccountably) not supported.

This is all rather odd.  (I need noninteractive dch in the dgit test
suite, so please don't just change it without disucssion...)
