I'm not doing any additional sponsoring, but here is a review:

Please forward the .desktop file and manual pages upstream if you
haven't already

The upstream README file includes information on downloading and
installing ophcrack, which is not relevant for Debian users. I'd
suggest asking upstream to split it out into README.install.

Upstream is using the ChangeLog file as a NEWS file, you might want to
point them at the GNU coding standards document:


The upstream code lists the old FSF address in the license grant
information, you might want to ask them to fix that.

./src/gui/histogram* are not under the GPL, instead they are under the
"Qwt License, Version 1.0". Please document the license and copyright
information for these in debian/copyright and ensure this license is
compatible with the GPL and OpenSSL licenses.

Please run this: sed -i -e 's/in command line/on the command line/'

You may also want to get the description reviewed by the
debian-l10n-english folks:


The package FTBFS on kFreeBSD, it looks like upstream's detection of
sysinfo availablility isn't complete, I'd suggest talking to the folks
on the debian-bsd list:


You might want to adopt the debhelper 7 dh style rules file:
