Could you please a little bit more verbose (links?) on this fact?
I have never heard about QC measures that depend on package priority.

Time for myself to adopt this usual habit for my own packages ... :)

 The Debian packaging is (C) 2007, Steffen Moeller <steffen_moeller@gmx.de> and
-is licensed under the GPL, see `/usr/share/common-licenses/GPL'.
+is licensed under the LGPL, see `/usr/share/common-licenses/LGPL'.

I always feel a bit guilty when the Debian packaging has a more
restrictive licence than the packaged program itself... But I will of
course revert this change if I do not have a formal agreement from you.

Well, I don't think that the extra restrictions really affect the packaging
stuff so I would consider both lines as equivalent.

I took a different approach for providing the symlinks, using dh_link.

I would always recommend this whenever possible.

I hope that these changes can help exonerate to make its way to NEW...
Actually, I may start to use it at work ;)

Were there any actual problems that prevented exonerate to go into the
NEW queue - the fixes are reasonable but none of them fix a problem that
would have prevented the former packaging from an upload.

Kind regards
