I had a quick look and also talked to Dennis, the upstream author. A few
issues came up:
* The current release is 0.4.2b, not 0.4.2. The version 0.4.3 is expected
  next week, so maybe we should shoot for that one.
* The two patches you added are unclear to me/Dennis. Maybe we can figure
  out what needs to change in upstream (if anything).
* Why did you split into two packages osrm and osrm-tools?
* Is there a reason why the one-line Description:s in control are all

Did I understand this correctly, that you are just helping out here and not
planning to release the package until somebody who actually uses the software
promises to maintain it? I don't use the software either, just know the author,
so I am of limited help here.
