could you please fix following:

* debian/changelog:
It is the initial release in Debian but it is containing some more
versions and builds, also the initial debian revision starts with -2,
please bump it to -1.

* debian/control:
There are some more trailing whitespaces in the long-desc, please remove

* debian/copyright:
- - line 39+40: please refer to the full path of the right license.

Please note:
I haven't done a full license+copyright check, yet.
