According to the WNPP there is currently an ITP by David Moreno Garza 
<damog@debian.org>. Did you talk to him already? The ITP is over three 
months old though. Still nice to coordinate who's doing what.

Further thoughts:
- don't mention debian/README.Debian in debian/altermime.docs
  It gets installed by dh_installdocs anyway.
- still debian/altermime.docs:
  the README doesn't carry much useful information. Consider dropping it.
- the README.Debian doesn't help much IMHO. If people find
  /usr/share/doc/altermime/README.Debian I believe they can also
  find /usr/share/doc/altermime/README
- the architecture is i386. Does it really not run on anything else?
- you call debhelper scripts like dh_link but you don't set links.
  Drop those calls.
- the man page you ship mentions a LICENSE file which does not get

".signature" [Modified] 1 line --100%--                1,48         All
