I'm afraid I don't understand. I am using the proposal from the page you
were referring. Other than the revision number from the example in the
proposal, I have no idea which newer revisions could possibly exist.

Ok, thanks. The problem is, there is no text for 'GPL-any'. I am
inclined to write something to the effect of:

"On Debian and Debian-based systems, a copy of the GNU General Public
Licenses are available in /usr/share/common-licenses."

Would this be ok?

Sorry, I overlooked the lintian error that was printed with the build
process. I will have a closer look in the future.

(I have locally fixed all your other concerns.)

Best regards,
