One (last?) update.
I have upgrade/recreated the repository one more time now. Thadeu
Cascardo pointed me to two lintian warnings that I had not seen before
(they're fixed now), and I've cherry-picked Andreas's commits (those
that import the NMU-0.2 and merge it to master), so now I think
everything is *really* covered. Oh, and I've searched the BTS and found
two bugs that requested a new version to be packaged, so I'm closing
them in the changelog. I intend to do a full bug triage once the
package is back to life.
Just for the record, I've kept *all* history from the previous git
branches, so absolutely nothing is deleted nor lost.
In other words, the package is ready to be re-uploaded.
