Ok. Some comments after having downloaded and built the -3 version

Running linda over the package gives this:
E: rssreader.app; The character '¼' is forbidden by RFC822.
E: rssreader.app; The character 'Ã' is forbidden by RFC822.
W: rssreader.app; The command /usr/bin/Grr listed in a menu file does not exist.
Now, I don't know where the forbidden characters are, but the menu
issue is very easy to fix.
Also, I read in the bug report that you stated that some files are
copyrighted by the author, and some other files are copyrighted by the
FSF. You show this in debian/copyright by merely stating that both
hold copyright, but this is giving the wrong impression.
You should state which files (or groups of files) are copyrighted by
one and which ones are copyrighted by the other one. Unless they are
really copyrighted by both of them at the same time, which does not
seem to be the case.
It would be nicer if you could use the -2 version. Maybe leave the
package at some website where it can be downloaded, instead of
uploading to mentors? It is apparently possible to do two uploads
with the same version to mentors, but I don't know how.
