A few notes:
- from changelog:
achilles (2-7.1) unstable; urgency=low

  * Non-maintainer upload.
  * New Maintainer. (Closes: #361167)
  * Added patch from Martin Michlmayr <tbm@cyrius.com> to add missing include
    required to build with GCC 4.3 (Closes: #417066).

This is not correct, you are the new maintainer so it is not an NMU. So the revision
is wrong and the changelog entry for the NMU.

- copyright file is a bit broken, see http://lists.debian.org/debian-devel-announce/2006/03/msg00023.html
- watch file is strange:
  uscan --report
  Processing watchfile line for package achilles...
  Newest version on remote site is 1, local version is 2
  achilles: remote site does not even have current version
  Can you explain the versioning here?

Fix the above issues and I'll sponsor you, please contact me off-list
(you can write in German ;)
Kind regards
