RFS: s5 (more DFSG free, refreshed Debian packaging)

Dear mentors,

I am looking for a sponsor for the new version 1.1.dfsg.2-1
of my package "s5".  It is a second DFSG repackaging of
the upstream 1.1 source which replaces the iepngfix.htc file
(currently under a "free if this notice is kept intact" license)
with a later version from its author distributed under LGPL-2.1+
as suggested by Simon McVittie in #563709.

While I'm here, I refreshed the Debian packaging a lot; see
the changelog entry below for details.

There is a single binary package:
s5         - A simple HTML-based presentation system

The package is almost lintian-clean; there are two warnings.
The first one is a pedantic warning about a missing upstream changelog,
which unfortunately I cannot do much about - I've contemplated extracting
a part of the HTML documentation, but it is not really enough for
a proper changelog.

Lintian also complains about a dfsg version containing a dot.
This is also true, and it was a mistake I made back when I first
repackaged it; however, I don't think there's much to be done about
it right now, not until Eric Meyer decides to release s5-1.2.
Of course, reversioning with an epoch (s5-1:1.1+dfsg.2-1) is always
an option, but IMHO not really needed in this case.

The upload would fix these bugs: 563709

The package can be found on mentors.debian.net:
dget -x http://mentors.debian.net/debian/pool/main/s/s5/s5_1.1.dfsg.2-1.dsc

I would be glad if someone uploaded this package for me.

JFYI, here's the changelog entry:

s5 (1.1.dfsg.2-1) unstable; urgency=low

  * Repackage to replace the iepngfix.htc file with a later version
    obtained from the author's website that is licensed under LGPL-2.1
    instead of the "free if this notice is left intact" former license.
    Also replace the file within the s5-blank.zip archive.
    Closes: #563709
  * Update the iepngfix.htc information in the copyright file.
  * Add misc:Depends to the binary package.
  * Bump Standards-Version to 3.8.3 with no changes.
  * Refer to the GPL-2 common license file instead of the symlink.
  * Minimize the rules file using debhelper override targets.
  * Move the get-orig-source actions into a separate shell script and
    teach them to replace the iepngfix.htc file everywhere it needs to be.
  * Convert the copyright file from a relatively recent version of
    the CopyrightFormat Wiki page to the DEP 5 format with minimal changes.
  * Fix the Vcs-Browser URL to point at the same repository path as
    the Vcs-Svn one.
  * Reorder the copyright file sections so that specific exceptions
    (s5.sh, iepngfix.htc) are always placed after the general sections.
  * Bump the copyright years on the Debian packaging.
  * Correct the s5 tool's manual page - remove the obsolete "bug" about
    no config files; this has not been true for almost two years now!
  * Convert to the 3.0 (quilt) source format with no changes.
