yes, but why?

As I stated in my previous mail, I only used `dh-make'
edited `debian/control' and `debian/rules' and 
did a `dpkg-buildpackage'. Additionaly I have
checked the package source directory again:
egrep -r "^M$" <package>
which doesn't show any matches.

I know the ways which have been recommended and some
more to achieve this ;-)

But I want to know
is this the actual reason why the package was rejected,
and how does it come that `lintian' doesn't complain
about the other lines containing a ^M at the end
of each line (except the signature)?

If you want to have a look at my package, you
may find it at
