Some comments:

- Consider adding a debian/watch file and a Homepage field to

- Scid is not exactly a game, so I think the executables should go to
  /usr/bin (as they do currently), not /usr/games.

- It seems that texlive-games supersedes the tex-chess package, so it
  would be good to suggest texlive-games | tex-chess rather than only
  the latter.  (Note who is listed as the maintainer of tex-chess, BTW.)

- You're suggesting phalanx, does analysis with phalanx work now?  If
  so, you should close bug #107658 with the upload.

Good luck in finding a sponsor!  I would very much love to see scid
updated in Debian.
