Please remove the homepage from the long description, there's a
dedicated “Source” field for that.

The long description could be reformatted, so that you leave empty
lines, or keep everything in a single paragraph, instead of just going
back to the beginning of the next line.

The Depends: on psycopg2 looks buggy. Shouldn't it be python-psycopg2

Don't write “foo - foo is a bar” in the short description. “Object
Relational Mapper with…” looks better (although I'm not a native English
speaker anyway).

Why is the revision -r4 anyway? Should be just -4.

Also, your diff is empty. Shouldn't you be building a Debian native
package if you're including your debian/ directory in the original
tarball? Anyway, I'll recommend *not* doing so, and keeping debian/
outside of the tarball, not building a Debian native package.
