Thank you for looking at the package.

What's left of bugs (not fixed or not forwarded upstream):
#202482 (That one is partially fixed and needs more work upstream).

Please don't hesitate to point those things out to me as it's better to
learn the right way in the first place instead of correcting bad habits
So, I can extend that tree structure as follows, can't I?
- change 1
- change 2
- change 1
- change 2
It's just that in this first upload the list is quite long. It should
not be a big deal later on, of course.

I'll upload the update package to my repository when I'm done and notify
