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:
