+phat (1.5-3) unstable; urgency=medium
+
+ This NEWS entry describes a change introduced in version 1.5-1 of the package,
+ but the entry was only added in -3.
+
+ An entirely unrelated "phat" source package existed in the Debian archives
+ from 2005 to 2014, before being removed in bug #751276. The current source
+ and binary reuse the package name, given the fact that the old package was
+ abandoned upstream (and so is unlikely to reappear), and the long gap between
+ removal of the old and addition of the new package.
