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

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

       @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 ""[ RaphaA<<l 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).

       @errors = $entry->parse_header()
       @errors = $entry->parse_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.

	   Obsolete method. Use	parse_header() instead.

	   Obsolete method. Use	parse_trailer()	instead.

	   always returns a Dpkg::Control object (possibly empty though).

	   Return the timestamp	of the changelog entry.

       $time = $entry->get_timepiece()
