Just looking at that one, you probably want

    Standards-Version: 3.8.2

which suggests that you didn't run a recent lintian on it. When
preparing packages, I usually build them with:

    debuild -us -uc --lintian-opts -iI --color always

lintian is a great tool.

I couldn't build it because I'm missing a bunch of the dependencies.

For group maintained packages its probably best to put them in the the
DHG darcs repo.  See:


Do you have a login on alioth? You don't need to be an official DD or
even a DM to get a login. Having that login and then being added to
the DHG, will allow you to commit to the darcs repo.
