Dropbox also provides integration with nautilus. Have you considered
including this or packaging it separately?

I plan on packaging Dropbox's nautilus plugin in a separate package, which I will work on once I've fixed any remaining issues with my packaging of Dropbox itself.

The package still includes software licensed under the LGPL for which no
source is provided (at least amd64/librsync.so.1, amd64/_librsync.so,
i386/librsync.so.1, i386/_librsync.so according to debian/copyright).

Thank you for pointing that out; I'll make sure that is fixed in my next upload to Debian mentors. Would it be all right if I simply included rsync as one of Dropbox's dependencies, instead of including rsync binaries directly in the source tarball? i.e. would I still have to provide the source code that way?

Kind regards,
