Yes, there is no one (I put this in the lintian-overrrides)

Um....? it is executable

No, I didn't
Why? _I_ expect a virtual host configuration in the sites-available
directory of apache (read: not the sites-enabled directory!). I hate it
when I have to search the documentation to find the example config (like
in squirrelmail or mediawiki or...). And the sites-available directory is
for site-configs that are _available_ and I first look there. The site can
simply be enabled with "a2ensite <sitename>".

Not empty anymore

(form the lintian error description)
If the package is not maintained upstream or if upstream uses a
distribution mechanism that cannot be meaningfully monitored by uscan and
the Debian External Health Status project, please consider adding a
debian/watch file containing only comments documenting the situation. 
I'm already in contact with the upstream author. He will put something up
that is (hopefully) readable by the googlecode-redirector. So the file
will be filled with content.

Yes, your're right, fixed

do); it would be nice to clean that up.
I've gone through the files and deleted empty lines if needed.

Thanks for the reply.
One question: how did you get lintian to report the "first-person..." and
"no-upstream-changelog..." ? I searched the documentation and my googlefoo
is weak today.

I'll wait with the new package till I can configure debian/watch i.e. the
upstream author puts a file in the downloads-section - could be that this
demands a new version numbering.
