Please read the developers reference section 5.9 and 5.11 and the Debian
policy to understand what a non maintainer upload is, how you can adopt
a package and how the fields in debian/control work.
Beside that unpack the package you created in a different directory and
review the patches you now have in debian/patches. You revert with your
changes the carefully crafted patches by the prior maintainer.
This automatic patch creation seems to be non-obvious to new maintainers,
I'm not sure how we can improve that beside talking about it.
And I don't know much, but I do know this:
