Bug Description

When git-ubuntu is reconstructing the debian/changelog file, it should ignore the "Signed-off-by" messages that some developers use in their commits, otherwise the reconstructed changelog looks like this:
strongswan (5.6.3-1ubuntu1) cosmic; urgency=medium

  * Merge with Debian unstable. Remaining changes:
        + Clean up d/strongswan-starter.postinst: section about runlevel changes
Signed-off-by: Christian Ehrhardt <email address hidden>
        + Clean up d/strongswan-starter.postinst: Removed entire section on opportunistic encryption disabling - this was never in strongSwan and won't be see upstream issue #2160.
Signed-off-by: Christian Ehrhardt <email address hidden>
    + d/rules: Removed patching ipsec.conf on build (not using the
      debconf-managed config.)
    + d/ipsec.secrets.proto: Removed ipsec.secrets.inc reference (was
      used for debconf-managed include of private key).
    + Mass enablement of extra plugins and features to allow a user to use
      strongswan for a variety of extra use cases without having to rebuild.
      - d/control: Add required additional build-deps
      - d/control: Mention addtionally enabled plugins
      - d/rules: Enable features at configure stage
      - d/libbstrongswan-extra-plugins.install: Add plugins (so, lib, conf)
      - d/libstrongswan.install: Add plugins (so, conf)
Signed-off-by: Christian Ehrhardt <email address hidden>
    + d/strongswan-starter.install: Install pool feature, which is useful since
      we have attr-sql plugin enabled as well using it.
Signed-off-by: Christian Ehrhardt <email address hidden>
    + Add plugin kernel-libipsec to allow the use of strongswan in containers

Thanks! I wonder if we can make this broader to ignore any RFC822-style "headers" at the end of the commit message.
