Alright, that's working with "lintian --profile grml ..." now:

% cat ~/.lintian/profiles/grml/main.profile
Profile: grml
Extends: debian/main
Disable-Tags: bad-distribution-in-changes-file

Open question:
We could ship that file as /etc/lintian/profiles/grml/main.profile as well, but
which package should provide that file so developers as well as Jenkins can also
use it?

Right; we still need to figure out how this whole vendor thingy works.

Recent versions of lintian provide some documentation regarding the vendor 
profiles in /usr/share/doc/lintian/lintian.html/section-2.5.html (available 
online in raw format as
p=lintian/lintian.git;a=blob;f=doc/lintian.xml;hb=HEAD), some notes are also 
available at

Unfortunately the lintian doc I found is quite lacking on the practical side of 
things, so I can't say what we need to do.
