I just started to look at your package and I'm not sure if I'll work with
you towards an upload (I'm offline for the coming week anyway) but here are
a few questions and remarks.

* The homepage gives me a 404.

* Why do you choose to name the source package rush and the binary package
  gnurush? I somehow miss the point to divert here the source and binary
  package name.

* I think the DEP5 format specification you give recommends to use a svn
  revision as format specification. While I can only continue to say that
  I don't care about DEP5 at all, as long as it's not declared to be
  mandatory by ftp-master, I would appreciate it if those who use it could
  settle what they would like to use as the format specification.

* Some auto generated drepper magic with a copyright notice:
po/Makefile.in.in:# Copyright (C) 1995-1997, 2000-2007 by Ulrich Drepper <drepper@gnu.ai.mit.edu>

build-aux/* has some more to check (yes, PITA to check them all ...)

* While some might have already forgotten about the FHS, your recommended
  use of /opt is against the idea of /opt. Depending on the general setup,
  and the content I'd like to serve, I would use /srv or /var.

And I don't know much, but I do know this:
