[maemo-developers] Upgrade Description and Package Interface fun

No, this is not an option IMHO, because the Upgrade Description would
tell about things not present in the current version in extras. This
only generates confusion.

As long as this critical bug exists, Upgrade Description must not be
considered mandatory for package updates in the extras-testing Q&A.
Hopefully this bug gets fixed, soon.
