you can use mentord.debian.org to upload the package .
Here are some useful links about mentors  .
To create a proper debian/copyright file please read DEP5 proposal  .
These are lintian warnings which should be fixed:
W: vpcs source: dh-make-template-in-source debian/vpcs.doc-base.EX
W: vpcs source: format-3.0-but-debian-changes-patch
W: vpcs source: out-of-date-standards-version 3.8.4 (current is 3.9.2)
W: vpcs: new-package-should-close-itp-bug
W: vpcs: copyright-refers-to-deprecated-bsd-license-file
E: vpcs: helper-templates-in-copyright
W: vpcs: description-synopsis-starts-with-article
W: vpcs: extended-description-line-too-long
I usually run lintian -Iivcm *.changes to get more verbose output .
