Great, next time please send links to .dsc files, it's easier for me
Now my remarks:
+ I had expected lintian to barf about the long Format-Specification
line, but it does not, ok, no change needed. (I used to do a
line-break after the : in my packages).
+ You have "Copyright: Copyright © 2009, Victor Castillejo" everywhere,
IMHO not a fault, but using only the © would be sufficient.
+ Files: Tango based icons
Files: GNOME based icons
you want to name the files
for the GNOME ones you miss the copyright holders
+ I still wonder about
"All the icons were either created in Inkscape, modified from
GNOME/Tango sources, or available under a free license." from the
AUTHORS file, the last part implies there are more derivative works?
+ Why are these not included into upstreams tarballs? Because they
have paths in them?
"grep -r home . |sed -e 's,.*/home/,,;s,/.*,,' |sort -u"
It will tell you, that there are four people who did the stuff?
But you list only Victor in copyright.
+ The same is fun in gnome-colors (when you unpack the tarballs) :(
+ grep -ri licen gnome-*/* |grep -vi "GPL/2.0" |grep -vi "cc:license"
is interesting too, it lists LGPL and CC-BY-SA-2.0 and 2.5 too.
And also CC-BY-NC-3.0 too - this is non-free! :(
So besides of the copyright/licensing stuff, the packaging is good and
can be uploaded as soon you fix these :) [I know, collecting copyright
info is painfull, but if we wouldn't do that, we'd still use Windows ;)]
