Why?

I started use this version because there should be easier backporting.
It is not needed any more ?

Nice that you added trailing ~ for backporting friendliness. That was not what triggered my question, though.

I do not know which version of debhelper is needed for which reasons (especially if you use short-form dh).

Reason I asked is that your commit message described only what you did, not hinting at _why_ you did it. This is not mandatory, but nice.

I would love instead a message like this (note also capitalization):

Changed debhelper version in dependencies: we use dh_foo (since 1.2-3).

I generally favor below style - all on a single line in git commits, and then generously (and always before bug-closures) replace dot-space with dot-newline-indent when later generating/finalizing changelog entry:

  * ACTION [(CLARIFICATION)][: REASON [(CLARIFICATION)]].
    [BUG-CLOSURES. [THANKS]]

Just a suggestion. :-)
