lintian -I --pedantic actually gives a few warnings:

  I: triggerhappy source: debian-watch-file-is-missing
  W: triggerhappy: description-starts-with-leading-spaces
  I: triggerhappy: init.d-script-does-not-provide-itself /etc/init.d/triggerhappy
  P: triggerhappy: no-upstream-changelog
  I: triggerhappy: spelling-error-in-manpage usr/share/man/man1/thd.1.gz seperated separated
  I: triggerhappy: spelling-error-in-manpage usr/share/man/man1/thd.1.gz appropiate appropriate

I'm also wondering if "admin" is the right section for your package;
"utils" maybe?

And although it is not required, using DEP-5 format [1] for your
debian/copyright file might be a good idea.

Well, it's a rather superficial review, but I hope it's helpful anyway.

Oh and one last thing (keep in mind I didn't look into your package very
thoroughly, so forgive me if it's a silly question), I saw in your
changelog that you introduced an option to drop root privileges; why
aren't you using it by default? From a security point of view, it would
of course be preferable, but maybe there's another reason not to do it?
