Technically yes, but I would like you to add DEP3[1] headers at least to
the patches you added / changed.  Lintian -i -I will tell you that the
headers are missing.  I consider them important for other Debian
maintainers who joing the collab-maint project as well as for upstream
if you want to forward the patches.  Since I want to teach proper
packaging in MoM I would insist on these DEP3 headers. :-)

I pushed the changes and will upload once DEP3 headers are added - feel
free to ask for more details if you are not sure what I mean.

Kind regards
