Oh these pages are nice! I didn't know about the bug, maybe I just
forgot it, or is it normal that I didn't receive a notification for it?
I think I fixed the bug and added a Closes: line in the changelog, I
hope it's the correct way.

Oh yes I forgot about lintian.
I fixed the watch file issue, I added the keywords but I still have the
informational message, and I don't understand what is wrong with the
copyright, the mentioned files are all available.
I think we'll fix the typo for 'powerful' in a next version, if
everything else is alright you can upload.
Thank you very much
