Well, yes and no ;) For this package all of this is still ok, since the
package is rather small. Your help and efforts are great and very 
appreciated, of course!
On the other we (q-leap) also have our own debian ofed packages and actually
we also want to upload these. But compared to unionfs-fuse ofed-1.3 is huge 
(38 packages) and I'm really scared of the debian-upload process.

Thanks for spotting that. Fixed now. I just uploaded another version.
dget http://mentors.debian.net/debian/pool/main/u/unionfs-fuse/unionfs-fuse_0.20-4.dsc

Thanks again for all your help,
