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

Noel Davis, rootprompt.org: Can you imagine a book about Debian GNU/Linux stretching to 600 pages? No, not covering any of the applications that ship with Debian, nor delving into general configuration of, say, X or Samba. Just pure Debian; that is to say, the book covers Debian-specific utilities only, in densely printed pages with hardly any screenshots. Yup, a book like that has just been published under the name of The Debian System - Concept and Techniques. Written by Martin Krafft, this is one of the most comprehensive and detailed accounts of the largest Linux distribution in existence.
