Thanks for your offer! I've uploaded an updated package based on your comments

What do you mean? There are no changes outside of ./debian:

Isn't it enough that the eqonomize handbook includes this notice:

"Permission is granted to copy, distribute and/or modify this document under 
the terms of the GNU Free Documentation License, Version 1.1 or any later 
version published by the Free Software Foundation; with no Invariant 
Sections, with no Front-Cover Texts, and with no Back-Cover Texts."

The same notice is in debian/copyright. If it would include e.g. Invariant 
Sections this notice wouldn't state that it doesn't, right?

Almost all applications start with an empty document and I think eqonomize 
shouldn't be an exception here, however an example document is a nice idea 
and I've added a small one 
as /usr/share/doc/eqonomize/examples/housekeeping_book.eqz.
