A couple copyright things:

The debian/copyright lists the upstream authors, but doesn't give any 
copyright declaration:

Also, AUTHORS also includes "Rick Chern <rchern@interchange.ubc.ca>", 
which is not listed in debian/copyright.

Also, there are quite a few other copyright holders not listed:

$ grep -ih copyright kst/kst/* | sort | uniq  | wc -l

Anyway, not that you probably need to list them all, but I might suggest 
listing at least all those in the AUTHORS file, and then noting that 
there are others besides those listed--this seems to be the common 
practice for packages that have many authors. =)
