Well, mutt adds it automatically as I have it configured to recognize all
debian-* as mailing lists.

I added now a "unlists debian-devel-announce" that will hopefully solve
this for next time.

The operation corresponds to (with dpkg-dev 1.14.20):
apt-get source <pkg>
dpkg-source --format="3.0 (quilt)" -b <pkg>-*
dpkg-source -x <pkg>_*.dsc
cd <pkg>-* && debuild

Yes, it means that packages not using quilt and without upstream changes
in the .diff.gz have an empty quilt series.
