You didn't forget anything. I've incorporated your suggestions in the
packaging. Thanks for the tips!

I spent quite sometime researching this issue, and with the knowledge I
gained I agree that your uscan version using d/copyright and the
get-orig-source script to handle the old way is quite nice. This is also
incorporated in the packaging.

Indeed. There is no need to use -pie like is required to build MapServer

I'm aware of Config::Model, but had not thought of using it to tidy the
control file. I have mixed feelings about cme dropping the versioned
dependencies when the minimum required is available in all releases, I
like documenting the versions upstream requires.

It's a bit abiguous about which copyright statements apply to which of
the files. This was how licensecheck2dep5 groups them by default. I
grouped the files per years and holders for MapServer in the past, so
I've now done this for osgEarth too.

Seeing the merits of pristine-tar, I've added the branch and push all my
changes for the above to git.debian.org.

My local build doesn't show any regressions, so if you could have
another look at the recent changes I'd be very grateful.
