Okay. Just keep in mind that you cannot change the orig.tar.gz which
is currently in Debian. You can only provide new *.diff.gz files for
the same upstream tarball. So it's more a todo when your upstream
releases a new version.

Or you artificially release an orig.gar.gz with a version that appears
higher than the current one.

You wouldn't want to look at my first package. ;)

I'll check your work later when I'm at home. If it's remotely okay I'll
upload it. Thanks for considering my comments. And don't be upset by some
of the comments here. IMHO that was too overreacting. There are
debian/rules files which look much worse.
