hmm, 2 remarks on that:
- - given that git-dch _could_ be used to generate the changelog i would
recommend to put the description you want to see in debian/changelog as
the "title" (1st line) of the patch

- - everything else (e.g why you think it is good and necessary to do what
you have done, what you think might be done once there is time and why
and everything) ought to be in the "body" (line3-EOF (with line2 being
empty)) of the commit message
