As I understand it, the IBPP files are simply copied
in /usr/include/ibpp. While this is not bad by itself, I wonder, what
is the purpose of the package?

Don't get me wrong, I am not against the package, it would be just
interesting to hear the reasons why you need it.

When packaging flamerobin, I talked to Olivier (IBPP lead developer)
and his preference was not to make IBPP a separate *library* package,
but simply continue to include it in the applications' source (as
flamerobin does). Your package is not a library one, but still, did you
talk to upstream stating your intention to package IBPP?

Flamerobin[1] includes IBPP in its sources and it passed
d-legal and ftp-master approval.
