Hi Stefanos!

Your GPG  key is  signed by nobody.  You should  try to get  some people
(preferably related to Debian) to sign your key.

Put  the manual page  in the  debian/ directory.  This ensures  that all
modifications for  Debian are constrained  into this directory.  And use
dh_installman  to install  it.  This avoids  to  modify Makefile.am  and
Makefile.in.

Your Depends  line in  debian/control is empty.  Are you sure  you don't
need any non essential package? From the description, I suppose that you
need something to do MySQL and PostgreSQL database.

It seems that debian/watch is not able to catch the latest version.

debian/copyright  says GPLv2 while  COPYING says  GPLv3. Most  files say
GPLv2, so debian/copyright seems to be correct.

You should also correct those lintian warnings:
I: vbackup: hyphen-used-as-minus-sign usr/share/man/man8/vbackup.8.gz:32
W: vbackup: doc-base-unknown-section vbackup:6 admin

Maybe you should ship a  minimal configuration like saving /etc and dpkg
database.  Usualy, it  is  better to  have  a package  that is  directly
usable. But it is up to you to see if this is revelant here.
