if you use a not-yet-released-version, then mark it as such in the
version you upload: the version above seems it's the official 1.7.0
while, from what you wrote, it seems you're doing the package from a
SVN snapshot, so use something like 1.7.0~svn<rev number> (information
at [l1])

that's not enough: at least you have to fill all the needed files in
debian/ dir. A usual start is running dh_make, that creates a
templates of several files in debian/ you can customize for the
project at hand.

we need a link to the .dsc file, and in the same location the
orig.tar.gz and .diff.gz should be present so that dget <url to >.dsc
will download all the 3.
