Ok, I didn't know about licensecheck before. Handy stuff: the
copyright statements in the source code files are GPL-2+, even if the
LICENSE.txt in the root of source is GPL-3. I corrected the
debian/copyright accordingly, and (kindly) asked the upstream author
to make up his mind before the next release.

Actually I believe the debian/watch should work as it is. That is my
first debian/watch file, though, so I'd like to ask you to double
check it if there is not too much trouble.
The upstream source CMake scripts have a bug: the source doesn't
compile without the .svn directories. So, in the first version I used
'svn checkout' to download the source instead of 'svn export'. In
current version the source tree is clean, and I patched the CMake
scripts to work without .svn dirs (and informed the upstream author).
AFAIK the watch file is still tracking the next tagged release.

Wow, that was easier than I expected. The version 0.9.2-1 is now
uploaded in mentors.d.n. I cleaned the 0.9.2-1~n versions away from
