Intent to package: wmnet (first time for me)


I came across this sweet program on the net. Apparently, this 
package is not yet part of Debian. I asked the programmer if it 
was ok for him to .deb it: yes.

Here is my control-File:

Source: wmnet
Section: x11
Priority: optional
Maintainer: Philipp Frauenfelder <pfrauenf@niederglatt.lugs.ch>
Standards-Version: 2.4.1

Package: wmnet
Architecture: i386
Depends: ${shlibs:Depends}, netbase
Description: network monitor for WindowMaker using kernel IP 
 This little program polls /proc/net/ip_acct and does a few 
things with the
 data it gets. The speedometer keeps track of the current speed 
per second
 and shows it in a color corresponding to which of rx or tx that 
has the
 highest speed at the moment.
 You WILL need ip accounting in your kernel and at least two ip 
 rules This version allows you to specify which accounting rule 
to watch for
 tx and rx and you will have to enter them in ipfwadm.

It is the first time for me that I package a program from 
scratch. I read both
They differ in what I have to do in order to contribute to 
Debian. The FAQ says that I have to shake hands with the project 
administrator (seems reasonable to me :-) ) and request an 
account on master etc. (part 14)
The HOWTO just say, that I should release the package with 
'release' (point 8) not mentioning the account or the shake 
hands (is this a bug?).

Question: is the account on master really necessary also if I 
want to upload to chiark?

Thanks in advance.
