2.0.99_2.1M5-0.1 seems to be a very old version of eclipse. Besides that, it's a crash in python-debian.

affects: ubuntu-dev-tools (Ubuntu) → python-debian (Ubuntu)

Indeed, that's an illegal version number.

I'm not sure what python-debian should do differently here.

submittodebian could probably stop parsing the whole changelog.
