OK, being upstream myself, I clarified the statement in the source files to
refer to GPLv3 specificly.

These changes were an accident produced by git-buildpackage; on my build
system, the upstream branch was not correctly checked out at HEAD, so the
changes were detected relative to the debian branch.

OK, I just ran an update to make sure my local tools are recent; since my
build/sign system is running stable, I might encounter a few warning messages

OK, I just updated the changelog to reflect this.

Thank you very much for your input, I hope you'll revisit my package as soon as
I uploaded the new version.
