I'm in contact with the upstream author. Currently, httpry is in a
pretty stable version without known bug. Last update was in last
summer and it does its tasks correctly. Thus, no new version is
scheduled at this moment.

I left httpry.dirs in debian/ because without it the package build
failed. Is it better to use another method ?

Indeed, I forgot this point in the previous release.

I update the debian/copyright to include the tcp.h specific license. I
grab into the other file, I didn't notice any other
license/copyright point. I checked other packages and Debian maintainer
to use a best practice. Hope this ok.
I hope the package  is cleaner :-)
Thanks for your advice.
