Thank you Sven,

Yup, that's what I though.

Try grabbing the debian packaging from here:
or use "apt-get source rhythmbox" and re-use the debian dir.

That means that Debian packagers (e.g. Loic Minier?) have manually edited the changelog in debian/ at the time of the packaging, but these changes have not been uploaded back to git (which - afaik - is the only version system used by rhythmbox, anymore). Is it right? How did they proceeded to compile it?

I've just seen that even if rhythmbox-0.12.4.deb has not been uploaded in debian repositories [1]-[2] yet, its sources have already been uploaded [3], so that theoretically I could now use dh_make and the "rhythmbox_0.12.4.orig.tar.gz", or original tarball, to obtain the package. Isn't it?

Thank you for your help.
