I noticed it and make it clear in my comentary on mentors.debian.net It had other lintian warnings and I fixed them all (as Dmitry E. Oboukhov noted). I want to fix this for the new release, but _that_ is why I want some help from this list (besides the upload). I do not know which of the two options to choose: a) Create a non-native package incuding a orig.tar.gz b) Create a native package changing the version numbering The problem is that the package I adopted used a non-native numbering without a orig.tar.gz and thought it was not right to change it too much for an adoption upload. > - the short description should start with a lower-case letter Fixed for next release > - in debian/copyright after "this package was debianized by > [...]", add "and is currently maintained by <your name and email here>" Thanks, I didn't think I was worth so much credit.

I hope I will be better from now on, with your help. Thanks again Noel Torres er Envite
