How are you editing debian/changelog? The timestamp is old!

Ah, oops, I forgot dch. I've been using emacs. The changelog is still something I am somewhat confused by. I get the idea of course, but the not the specifics. I was under the impression that pkg-multimedia uses
git-dch to automatically generate the changelog, so I stopped editing
it. Also, since this package hasn't been released yet, should I still
be adding things to the changelog?

Well, it depends on how many things you had to do. In this case, it
appears that not much (other than fixing minor mistakes not found in a
previous release). But you should still run dch. Please read the
manpage, specially the section about the release heuristics. I use the
changelog one, which seems to work well for our workflow.

Ok makes sense. I updated the timestamp with dch and pushed the commit. The last question for me here is what should go into the changelog for this initial release?

Also, there is no need to ship the GPL text in the package. It seems
like no patch or file tries to read the license, so no need to ship it
(we already have the copyright file).

The LICENSE.txt file is part of the standard library format.

Does anything break if we don't ship it?

On all other platforms/distros it'll have that file there, and its visible using the library browser, so it would be only on Debian that you didn't see the license file. I think that sounds like minor but actual breakage.
