Re: RFS: wallpaper-tray (updated package)
Thanks for all the advice.
I'm a little busy this week, I will try to look at it in the weekend.

You switched to a patch management system. Good point. However, the
patch is unreadable. I suppose that you needed to rerun autoconf
stuff. In this case, just patch Makefile.am or configure.ac and depends
on autotools to generate all this stuff. This way, you keep the patch to
the minimal size.
You should look at the list of the opened bugs for this package. Maybe
this new upstream package fixes some of them. You should also close
AUTHORS and MAINTAINERS do not contain any new information with respect
to debian/copyright. I think that you can safely not ship them.
You depend on debhelper 7 but do not use any feature of it. Stick to
debhelper 5, this will ease the work of backporters.
I am not sure, but since you ship a gconf schema, you need to register
it. I think dh_gconf can do it.
