This bug was fixed in the package ubuntu-dev-tools - 0.121

ubuntu-dev-tools (0.121) unstable; urgency=low

  [ Daniel Holbach ]
  * harvest, setup.py: install tool that queries Harvest for information
    about open opportunities for a given source package.

  [ Stefano Rivera ]
  * ubuntutools.archive.rmadison: suite can be None, handle this correctly.
  * pull-debian-debdiff: Convert distance to an integer, so it works when
  * sponsor-patch, doc/sponsorpatch.1: Clarify that --upload or --workdir is
    required. (LP: #712721)
  * Drop Breaks: ${python:Breaks}, no longer used by dh_python2.

  [ Benjamin Drung ]
  * ubuntutools.update-maintainer: Do not use python-debian to parse
    debian/control to avoid mangling this file (LP: #756373). The new
    simplified parser has no problems with comments in debian/control
    (LP: #701487, #713827).
  * doc/setup-packaging-environment.1: Fix typo.
  * Bump Standards-Version to 3.9.2 (no changes required).
  * Drop transitional qemu-kvm-extras-static from alternative suggests.

  [ Ted Gould ]
  * lp-project-upload: Use a milestone that already exists if there is
    one to use.
