Dear Joachim,

It is very nice that you contacted Gundolf before adopting the Debian package.
I just uploaded the updated version from mentors.debian.net.

Here are a couple of minor comments on the package, that can be adressed in a
later upload.

 - How about maintaining the source package in a VCS?
 - Why is the cron script in /etc/cron.daily prefixed by ‘zz-’?
 - The dual changelog / ChangeLog is quite confusing because they are both
   Debian changelogs.
 - ${shlibs:Depends} is not needed in debian/control.
 - In README.Debian, “alle directories” should be “all directories”.
 - The information about who packages backup2l in debian/copyright is redundant
   with the changelog, and may be reomved if you wish so.
 - You chose GPL version 3 for the packaging, but backup2l is GPL version 2 or
   superior. If you appreciate the possibility of upgrading from version 2 to
   3, how about adding an ‘or (at your option) any later version’ clause?
 - Lastly, lintian found some bugs in the manpages. Since you are in contact
   with Gundolf, this is a good opportunity to get then fixed upstream directly.

Have a nice day, and enjoy this end of year !
