Re: RFS: sphinxsearch
I'm not a DD just wanted to see how to used docbase... But here are my
2 russian kopejkas.

1) rules - have you though of using dh7 style? (just %: dh @ with
overrides) Or is there a _specific_ reason for debhelper 5
compatability? (lenny has debhelper 7 so it should be easy to
backport) With debhelper 7 your rules will become much smaller. See
man dh and other revelant for details.
2) rules - please consider running the test suite here (*hint* needs a
variable in rules)
3) copyright - there is DEP#5 proposal for the machine parsable
copyright file (it's not a rule or anything). If you like it try using
4) changelog I'm sure that it should be (Closes: #NNNNN) e.g. 
5) control - are you using a version control system for your
packaging? (I would suggest you do, bzr-builddeb and git-buildpackage
are very strong contenders and both support pristine-tar, ie. saving a
small binary delta to regenerate an identical tarball at build-time)
6) control - I'm sure your long description is too short (it's abscent).....
Now running lintian with following options -i -I -v -E --pedantic gives this:
P is for pedantic (eg. not all agree on it); X is for eXperimental -
lintian might got it wrong; I is Informational.
I's you should correct. P and X - choose and pick
