Okay, up to you. I think people often leave the default priority when
it could be bumped back, without really giving it any thought.

Okay, then I guess it is okay. Sorry for the confusion; I don't know

Nope. Check uscan.1; the sf.net format actually uses http://sf.net/,
and is rewritten internally by uscan. I don't know if your method
would fail, but it is unintentional, and more ugly :)
For more info:
Also, your ./debian/dirs is now exactly one line long. If I were
using a non-cdbs debhelper, I would remove the file, and put the dir
as an argument to dh_installdirs; but, I don't know if you can do that
Since you "repackaged" the .orig tarball  (right?), could you make
it extract to ./php-getid3-1.7.5.orig/ instead, as documented in the
 because upstream has a .zipball only

18.104.22.168; the anchor for this is broken; it has a space, which
doesn't work for me as a +, thus the bug. Probably hasn't been
found before only because since the TOC doesn't link to it ..
which IMO it should..
