Thanks for putting up with a package that needs attention.

Well, the package isn't in a bad shape. There are a few things, though.
For instance, using source format 3.0 makes quilt obsolete for it. The
source format is callef '3.0 (quilt)' for a reason. ;) Also, you might
want to run something like

lintian -IEm --pedantic --show-overrides --color auto

on your changes file. Not that all of that would need to be fixed but it
gives a fairly thorough automatic review and shows a few issues. How
about you have a look at that and re-upload after fixing that? Cool?
