By what you said I presume that I should put experimental in the
changelog? but I'm sure that it must go in unstable, why it will not go

Done. Maybe I'll added the diet support later if someone ask or if I
found it useful for the monkey project.

Done!. It was a lot more easy, thanks it was a lot better =)

I'm not sure if I understood properly but does this means that I have to
create a .tar.gz file with the debian directory inside? or just use some
debian tools to put the debian directory inside? can you point me with
the official documentation about this? Can you point me with a document
with more details about this?

I used the opcion -L ">wishlist" I want to fix the wishlist bugs later
cause I need to read more and don't want to stop the process while you
review or help me with this package I can do other fix like the ones on
wishlist =)

The dget line for package with the fixes.


Are you at IRC sometime in the day to chat about this and ask you a few
things more faster? or you prefer the ml?

Well, thanks for all  your help it's so nice that someone help you with
this things =)
