Package: dpkg-dev
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

when building stretch-backports package I used:

 % sbuild --build-dep-resolver=aptitude --debbuildopts="-v<last-main-version>"

as recommended at

However, when generating the source.changes file, the -v switch is ignored.
It just generates the long changelog for the binary .changes file.

It would be great to address that in order to properly support source-only 
upload workflows.
In fact, I don't even know were the source.changes file is being generated, 
since is not reported
by sbuild.

Thanks for your hard work!
