requestsync files a bug with the wrong version in the title, not in the changelog

Bug Description

Binary package hint: ubuntu-dev-tools

Under Gutsy, ubuntu-dev-tools 0.19 installed, I issued the following command:

requestsync -s praat hardy

It filed Bug #182993. The bug description is correctly filled with changelog from 4.6.40-1 (last Ubuntu version) to 5.0.2-1 (last Debian versione available), but title shows "Please sync praat 5.0.0-1".

According to version 5.0.2-1 gone into unstable on 2008-01-06.

Probably requestsync take the first line to get current source version in unstable, while it should consider the one where "source" is specified. Wasn't "-a source" meant to show only source version? If so, it seems a devscripts bug instead.

It's more a bug in Debian rmadison.php script as rmadison is only a frontend for it. And the web frontend has the same problem.

I've a local work-around for it, which I should push into bzr.

A fix (or more precisely a work-around) is commit to ubuntu-dev-tools bzr (revision 53).

  [ Stephan Hermann ]
  * mk-sbuild-lv: check for debootstrap release names in
    /usr/share/debootstreap/releases and not in /usr/lib/debootstrap/releases
  * pbuilder-dist:
    - check if $SYSCACHE is not set and stay with the default, if
      SYSCACHE = 0 use the default from pbuilderrc or honor $DEBCACHE
      (LP: #156183)
    - removed $BINARCH check in pbuilder call, and set --debootstrapopts
      directly, it doesn't matter when it's always set. The Subshell call
      didn't work (LP: #175183)
    - added support for --http-proxy, honours now $http_proxy or $HTTP_PROXY

      Instead of this behaviour add $BASE_DIR/etc/$DISTRIBUTION/apt.conf/

  [ Daniel Holbach ]
  * hugdaylist: drop one Ubuntu filter statement.

  [ Kees Cook ]
  * what-patch: change default operation back to quiet mode -- script is used
    in automated tools, so default behavior is best to leave unchanged.
  * check-symbols: check for binary list very carefully.
  * dch-repeat: add Hardy to distro list.
  * mk-sbuild-lv: use -r instead of -f for possible debootstrap symlinks.

In ubuntu-dev-tools 0.66, this problem have relapse.
According to changelog, Bienia's workaround was removed from version 0.66,
and upstream bzr rev 341.

However it seems that does not work.

Ex. package of jd
Debian unstable's source: 1:2.3.0-090305-1
Ubuntu jaunty: 1:2.2.0-090212-1

reportsync's message:
$ reportsync --lp jd jaunty
The versions in Debian and Ubuntu are the same already (1:2.2.0-090212-1). Aborting.

rmadison's message:
