Lintian errors are almost always an immediate REJECT, so they don't
really slow down the process. Warnings slow the process down as then
I'm required to make a judgement call as to allow the package in or
not, so I'm much happier if the packager deals with them beforehand.

debian/control and debian/copyright are the two main files for
ftpmaster checks, so having those clear and well written makes my job
faster. debian/changelog needs to have valid information, too.
debian/rules I check to make sure that it is sane - or at least looks
like sane. debian/source.lintian-overrides is always checked.
