You can greatly help the person reviewing the upload by running git-dch
at the point where you think the package is ready for upload, i.e., you
think the package is in a state that you would have uploaded yourself
if you had upload priviledges.
Of course the actual upload might want to do some additional changes or
spots mistakes. In that case he has to update the changelog in a
seperate commit, but that's not really a problem.
