       dpt-rename-uploader - handle maintainer email changes


       dpt rename-uploader full name old email new email

       To be run from git/packages directory.


       dpt rename-uploader walks over all package directories and changes any occurrences of
       author's old email address in debian/control and debian/copyright with their new email
       address. It is handy when an uploader became a Debian Developer and wants to use their address.

       A suitable entry is added to debian/changelog, but nothing is committed.

       Repositories with uncommitted changes are not touched and a warning is issued.
