Okay, uploaded, thanks for your patience. This will go through Debian NEW 
queue [1] which will take some time. 

I dared to change your last debian/changelog entry (I hope it is ok with you) 
* Incremented version correctly (no longer NMU)
* Incremented version correctly (no longer non-maintainer version)

since lintian was trying to be too smart, but was wrong to complain for:

W: replaceit source: changelog-should-not-mention-nmu
N:   The first line of the changelog entry for this package appears to
N:   indicate it is a non-maintainer upload (by including either that
N:   string or the string "NMU" and not saying that it's an
N:   acknowledgement), but the changelog indicates the person making this
N:   release is one of the maintainers.
N:   If this was intended to be an NMU, do not add yourself as a maintainer
N:   or uploader. Otherwise, please rephrase your changelog entry to not
N:   cause confusion.

not a big deal though, but it was your `NMU' string which made lintian to 
consider it as an incorrect NMU. That is not your fault of course since it 
was mentioned in a completely different context. I don't think that lintian 
needs some more logic to be injected, since a simple rephrase for that 
changelog entry is completely in order and easy to do.
