I have read the SoB entry but I was offline yesterday. Here are my
remarks for the sponsering:
1. Homepage: http://www.qlandkarte.org
-> I guess this is a cut-n-pasto. Shouldn't this read
2. The description is a bit short. I personally would not have been
catched by it as potential user. Could you please be more verbose
3. As I have read you had trouble with mk-origtargz which is as far
as I can tell caused by some bug in a specific tar version (I
didn't tried with the latest one in unstable but I was affected
once with a package I maintain). So if you intend to keep you
manual tarball creation I'd suggest to use the following options
--owner=root --group=root --mode=a+rX
which are used in mk-origtargz. I'd also recommend using xz
instead of gz (feel free to compare the compression result).
I would like you to fix 1. and 2. while 3. is just a hint you can feel
free to ignore.

Since I was offline yesterday and did not took the time to follow this
discussion please confirm that you dealt with this.
Kind regards and thanks for working on QMapShack
