Two points you might want to address:

- be binNMU-safe (if possible;-) - for the Package: libmalaga-dev
(since it is Architecture: any and strictly depends on a package which is also 
Architecture: any) use Depends: libmalaga7 ${binary:Version} and 
Build-Depends: dpkg-dev >= 1.13.19 in order to explore that functionality. 
See recently discussed binNMU-safe related thread in that list for complete 

- convert doc-control to UTF-8 since it contains character (ö) which is not 
present in iso-8859-1 if I'm not mistaken about the current encoding.

Otherwise the package looks solid IMO.

P.S. You don't want to kill history in your changelog file; use next entry 
(7.6-2) and your prospective sponsor will remember to build the package 
with -vversion option of dpkg-buildpackage to include needed (Closes:) 
entries to the resulting *.changes file and let BTS complete its part of the

I'm not a DD, but hopefully you will find a sponsor.
