I should say: you have two possible options.  One is to add a new
changelog stanza, with -2 version, and listing the changes since -1.

The other is to bump the version to -2 in the existing changelog
stanza heading, and bump the changelog trailer timestamp.  If you do
that you probably want to add a bullet point to the changelog stanza
saying `revision -1 was REJECTed from NEW' or something.

I prefer the former approach.

In either case there is nothing wrong with using a -2 version like
this.  Some other tools would require special options make sure that
the .orig is included in the upload, but if you are using dgit it will
automatically get this right (because it can query the archive to see
if the .orig is already there).

a private address which bypasses my fierce spamfilter.
