My main concern (apart from the valid hijacking concerns raised) is that
it's a Debian native package. That's not right; you should use an
orig.tar.gz from upstream; even if you pull from CVS yourself, you need
to make a tgz out of that and use that as the orig.tar.gz. The .diff.gz
will then contain exactly the packaging and other Debian-specific

The package also exhibits some other lintian/linda warnings/errors:

The CVS one may be caused by using "cvs co" instead of "cvs export".
