The placeholder still seems to be present?

When I suggested mentioning what policy document was used, it was in
the hope of making it easier for others to collaborate.  For example,
mentioning the "Debian Spelling Dictionaries and Tools Policy" would
give people a hint that


explains some of the goals of the package.

Ah, okay then.  The usual notation might be something like this:

  * Initial package. (Closes: #604557 LP: #63189)

Looks like you fixed this. :)  FWIW gitweb is the name of the software
that generates http://git.debian.org/. [1]

Also FWIW though it may seem counterintuitive, there is no need for
quilt to be installed when unpacking a 3.0 (quilt) package.  Try it!

So if you want to use "3.0 (quilt)" in debian/source/format that
should be fine; no need to add quilt back to Build-Depends to do that.

This one still seems to be present.

No problem.  Sorry for my crankiness.  The package is getting better.
