In chapter 5. The Debian package management system on page 237:
In the section "Logging the changes" in chapter 5.9, the
following invocation of dch is used:
dch --version=$VERSION+0.local.1 -- Made some local changes
The option --version displays the version information of the tool, and does not pass its argument to dch the way I had intended it. The correct long option for -v is --newversion, and thus the command should be:
dch --newversion=$VERSION+0.local.1 -- Made some local changes
