NAME
       Dpkg::Changelog::Entry::Debian - represents a Debian changelog entry

DESCRIPTION
       This object represents a Debian changelog entry. It implements the
       generic interface Dpkg::Changelog::Entry. Only functions specific to
       this implementation are described below.

FUNCTIONS
       my @items = $entry->get_change_items()
	   Return a list of change items. Each item contains at least one
	   line.  A change line starting with an asterisk denotes the start of
	   a new item.	Any change line like "[ Raphaël Hertzog ]" is treated
	   like an item of its own even if it starts a set of items attributed
	   to this person (the following line necessarily starts a new item).

       my @errors = $entry->check_header()
       my @errors = $entry->check_trailer()
	   Return a list of errors. Each item in the list is an error message
	   describing the problem. If the empty list is returned, no errors
	   have been found.

       $entry->normalize()
	   Normalize the content. Strip whitespaces at end of lines, use a
	   single empty line to separate each part.

UTILITY FUNCTIONS
       my $bool = match_header($line)
	   Checks if the line matches a valid changelog header line.

       my $bool = match_trailer($line)
	   Checks if the line matches a valid changelog trailing line.

       my @closed_bugs = find_closes($changes)
	   Takes one string as argument and finds "Closes: #123456, #654321"
	   statements as supported by the Debian Archive software in it.
	   Returns all closed bug numbers in an array.
