Thanks Stephen!

I've prepared:

- https://salsa.debian.org/games-team/uqm/-/merge_requests/1 
  which changes build system to dh sequencer, thus fixing #999132

- I've also prepared simple patch:

  which fixes broken URLs in debian/control, if you think that is
  acceptable for NMU.

Let me know what you think and which further changes I should make (if any).

Thanks, after #999132 is dealt with, I'll reach out to Dmitry to find out what
are his preferences.
