I'm not doing any additional sponsoring at the moment, but here is a review:
Please send the manual page upstream if you haven't already.
resources/img-src/Copyright.htm indicates that the icons are under a
non-free license. Please ask upstream to fix that. If upstream prefers
to use a Creative Commons license for them, they need to choose CC >=
3.0 and not any of the NC or ND versions. In the meantime you could
remove the icons from the package. Hmm, the AUTHORS.txt file says the
icons are from the Tango project, which recentlyish released all their
icons into the public domain. If AUTHORS.txt is correct then upstream
should remove the Tango icons from the source tarball and the Debian
package should depend on tango-icon-theme, which is now in main:
picard/browser/filelookup.py looks like it is under the RCSL and not
the GPL, despite what it says in the file. Upstream can't just slap on
the GPL onto RealNetworks' code, that wouldn't be legal.
sed -i -e 's/this three license\./these three licenses./' debian/copyright

You might want to consider adopting debhelper 7 dh style rules and or DEP5:
