Ok, but from the packager point of view, it helps you to see how many packages you have worked before. I can delete whatever you think convenient, but I began to package it with one version of the library and changed it. So, I tried to document it. Can I leave the entries but change it from unstable to UNRELEASED? > debian/README.Debian: > - Please delete this file.

I guess you will like the result. First of all, I must admit that I don't understand what are you asking me with the dpkg-control. I put this field because I checked the generated packages with "lintian -EviIL +pedantic". And then, I got a lintian warning like: N: The package contains a preinst maintainer script that uses N: dpkg-maintscript-helper but does not declare a versoned pre-dependency N: on dpkg (>= 22.214.171.124~) that provides that script. so, I do that. > pristine-tar branch is missing: > - If you imoprt the orig.tar.gz please use > git import-orig --pristine-tar /path/to/package_version.orig.tar.gz > to make sure your sponsor / team member can easily recreate a byte > identical tarball. Ok, the problem I found is that the official version got some problems that I report to upstream and changed it in mercurial. Ti me is ok the version with the commit hash, so I imported that one. But it seems I forget some step. I solve it soon. > lintian warnings: > - please check `lintian -I -i` and consider to fix some lintian > nitpicking issues. > > So far for the sponsoring request.
