Seems to be a common issue among DDs that there is no agreement on
whether CDBS or Debhelper should be used. I for one prefer Debhelper but
for very simple packages also accept CDBS. There are strangely other DDs
who seem to force package maintainers to rewrite the rules files to
CDBS. I don't understand that really.
Package is uploaded.
Peer review means that you can feel better because someone else
missed the problem, too.
