Thanks for reviewing. I've uploaded to mentors.d.n a new version of the
package based on the new upstream release (0.10.0).

The package can be found on mentors.debian.net:
- URL: http://mentors.debian.net/debian/pool/main/h/hiredis
- Source repository: deb-src http://mentors.debian.net/debian unstable main
  contrib non-free
- dget http://mentors.debian.net/debian/pool/main/h/hiredis/hiredis_0.10.0-1.dsc

Some other "major" changes have been the bump to Standards-Verion 3.9.2,
the inclusion of the pkg-config file made by Andriy Senkovych, some patches
have been reworked (mainly to reflect upstream sources), and the rename of 
the -dev package from libhiredis0-dev to libhiredis-dev.

Could you please review the new version as well?

I'm going to contact upstream as soon as possible. Thanks for the pointer.
What would be a viable solution? I mean, is a new upstream release needed,
or just a statement from the upstream author (e.g. on the project's 
bugtracker, to which d/copyright will point) is enough? The second solution
does not exlude the first of course (the files will be fixed in a 
subsequent release) but would permit the package to enter Debian without 
waiting and to not block other packages that depend on this (e.g. webdis 
which is an ITP).
