I can't sponsor the package, but I have some small comments (some of
which may well be wrong).
* You seem to heavily patch the manpage. The original manpage looks like
it is taken from another binary (fbpanel). Please remember to send
* You don't invoke "make clean" in your debian/rules' clean target. To
see why this is bad, try building the package twice with
dpkg-buildpackage (not pbuilder).
* config.h is included in the diff, although it is generated as part of
the build process. It'd be better if you simply remove in the clean
target of debian/rules (and send patch upstream so "make clean" does
* Why do you build-depend on autotools-dev? I see to auto* usage in
debian/rules - just simple ./configure; make. Did you try building the
package with pbuilder without autotools-dev?
