or, if you are using sbuild to build your package, you can use the
--source-only-changes option which generates a .changes file for a source-only
upload alongside the regular .changes file.

It might also not hurt to generate a source-only .changes file for every build
with sbuild by putting this into your ~/.sbuildrc:

$source_only_changes = 1;
