Hi Andrew!

On Debian  mailing list, the  convention is that  we don't send  copy to
original author unless this is requested (with a Mail-Followup-To header
for example).

I don't remember if your  original package modified files from upstream,
but you  should prefer the  use of a  patch management system.  quilt is
easy to use with debhelper. For  very simple change, you could also just
use  sed in  debian/rules (for  example  to remove  encoding in  desktop

You still have a comment at  the top of debian/rules saying that this is
a sample file. Obviously, this is not a sample file any more.

You state that eggaccelerator.h is  GPL2+. However, this is LGPL2+.  Use
licensecheck to help you spot those copyright issues.
