I thought you meaned you were not using the patches.
However, as you have dropped 4 patches from previous version,
and added one, it should be logged why.
Please also fix this lintian warning, as previously commented by
W: morse: copyright-refers-to-deprecated-bsd-license-file
N: The copyright file refers to /usr/share/common-licenses/BSD. Due to the
N: brevity of this license, the specificity of this copy to code whose
N: copyright is held by the Regents of the University of California, and
N: the frequency of minor wording changes in the license, its text should
N: be included in the coypright file directly rather than referencing this
N: This file may be removed from a future version of base-files if
N: references to it drop sufficiently.
N: Severity: minor, Certainty: certain
That is: update the license text from upstream COPYING:
And remove this paragraph from debian/copyright:
On Debian systems, the complete text of the BSD License can be
found in `/usr/share/common-licenses/BSD'.
With this two changes done, I'll do the upload for you.
