I reviewed your package, and here's a list of things that could be
- Your debian/watch file currently matches the upstream version
'build-Linux-x86_64-02.01.04', which is not what you want; you need
to refine it; also, this file shouldn't be executable.

would you say it's the case here?
Your long description seems a bit convoluted and you repeat the
words "the library" a lot. Also, your spelling of ID3v2 is not
