Please post the URL to the .dsc next time and preferrably use
A review of your package:
You should put the MPL in debian/copyright, not in a separate file.
Is the "FireGPG Team" a legal entity? Sounds like a made-up name to
me, and therefore may not hold copyright in many parts of the world.
The many layers of zip files in the source package is weird:
orig.tar.gz > firegpg.xpi > chrome/firegpg.jar
Couldn't you just distribute the source code in the orig.tar.gz
instead of a pre-built jar file?
Then you would have something to do in the build target, which is
required according to policy:
Looks like upstream provides the code in SVN, so that is possible:
svn co svn://svn.tuxfamily.org/svnroot/firegpg/firegpg
Since you will be working from SVN, you should create a debian/rules
get-orig-source target that creates a tarball from upstream SVN.
Problematic files in the source package:
windows binary, no source code
(minor) looks like an upstream packaging mistake
orig.tar.gz/firegpg.xpi/chrome/firegpg.jar/skin/opt-gmail.png <-- is
this taken from the gmail site and resized?
