	First of all you might want to have a look at the lintian
Warnings/Errors (just the sourcepackage below but please check also
the binary (lintian on the changes file). Then your package seems to
not be in Debian yet? if so there's no ITP bug on wnpp and the
changelog contains lots of stuff, where does that come from?

	Same here. What I wonder as well is why you have *native* packages
here. Is that Software specific to debian in some way?

% lintian -IE --pedantic python-purity_0.2.4.dsc
W: python-purity source: diff-contains-hg-tags-file .hgtags
W: python-purity source: diff-contains-hg-control-dir .hg
E: python-purity source: missing-python-build-dependency
W: python-purity source: out-of-date-standards-version 3.8.0 (current
is 3.8.3)

	That just tells you that you already uploaded the package to
mentors. You could just use the -f option in dupload to overwrite that
upload (and that looks like another native package? please fix that!).
