You have one wishlist lintian issue ( try running with -iIE --pedantic )

I: mosquitto source: duplicate-long-description libmosquitto0 libmosquitto0-dev
N:    The listed binary packages all share the same extended description. Some
N:    additional information in the extended description explaining what is in
N:    each package and how it differs from the other packages is useful,
N:    particularly for users who aren't familiar with Debian's package naming
N:    conventions.
N:    Severity: wishlist, Certainty: certain
I: mosquitto source: duplicate-long-description libmosquittopp0

I'm not sure about the binary packages:


I don't know if you can have underscores. Might want to change those
to dashes. Might want to add DEP3 headers to the patches and change
the Copyright to DEP5 while you're in there as well.

I just tried to do a build and it FTBFS because of the package names.
Turns out I was right on my guess.

Needs some love :)
