To say "GPLv3" or "GPLv3 or any later"? (I did not check the tarball for
the reasons listed below)

Generally it is expected that you build the package in a clean chroot
and I strongly recommend you use a recent version of lintian when you
check your package as well.

I tried to re-fetch your package, but dpkg-source refuses to unpack it
because the tarball has a different size than what is expected(/written
in the .dsc). Not sure what happened, but according to the directory
listing on mentors.debian.net, the orig.tar.gz is from March and the
dsc is from today.
Perhaps, you have to remove the package from mentors and re-upload it
