As you are neither a programmer in the relevant language, a user of the
software, or a Debian developer, are you certain you wish to package this
Not being a DD is a fairly minor detail - I have filed ITPs myself without
being a developer - but I believe it is generally a good idea to use software
-before- packaging it... Unusable packages do far more harm than good, and I
can see how this could easily become such a case.
Just a suggestion...
