Dear mentors,

Please CC me in a reply, since I am not subscribed to the list.

Thanks to Paul Wise for reviewing the source package.

Version 2.1-2 incorporates most of Paul's suggestions. Here are the ones
I intentionally left out:

1) I do not use override_foo rules, because they are not available for
   lenny without backporting.
2) I do not use source format 3.0, for easier backporting (potentially
   targeting etch).
3) uscan reports a newer version 2.1-beta1. I can prepare experimental
   packages if there is interest.

Further comments are welcome as well as uploading the package to sid.
However I will not respond to any mails during the remainder of this
