Some notes:

* Please name the package liblocal-file-clojure as this is in line with the
  naming convention for other clojure libraries such as clucy
  (libclucy-clojure), robert-hooke (librobert-hooke-clojure), ...

* The license is missing in the description even though local_file.clj states
  that it is in the public domain.

  IANAL and not sure if upstream needs to declare this more formally with, for
  example [0]

* The short description should give the reader an idea what this
  package/library can be used for. "small clojure library" is not particularly
  informative and I would replace it by something like upstream's short
  description "Read and write files locally from a clojure program".

* The long description is just a verbatim copy of upstream's README.md and is
  targeted at people who *do not* use the Debian package, but want to install
  it with leiningen. Please write an informative description that gives the
  reader a good idea why (s)he would like to install this package and what it
  could be used for.

All that being said: Thank you for your continuing work on clooj and its
