The section of Debian a package is added to depends solely on the DFSG
compliance of the software (freely licensed and released source code).
Whether software is classed as non-Debian depends on the quality of the
software and on Debian having permission to redistribute the software.


It sounds like your software is probably DFSG compliant but that you
have some organisational issues that are not best practice for a proper
 Free Software project. While I would encourage you to fix those
issues, they are by no means a requirement for your software to enter

The bigger problem for entering Debian is what Andreas mentions, that
the software uses Qt4 instead of Qt5. Once you have released a new
version that uses Qt5 it could potentially enter Debian.
