please explain WHY you can't correct them. for example:

W: ah: manpage-has-bad-whatis-entry usr/share/man/man1/ah.1.gz

patch the manpage

W: ah: maintainer-script-empty postinst
W: ah: maintainer-script-ignores-errors postinst

very easily fixable

W: ah: copyright-without-copyright-notice

very easily fixable

W: ah: syntax-error-in-debian-changelog line 1 "badly formatted heading line"
W: ah: syntax-error-in-debian-changelog line 1 "found eof where
expected first heading"

use dch

in general, use lintian -iIv --pedantic <file>.changes to know get all
the messages from lintian along with their description
