Thanks for your work. My comments are:

1. Your package source still contains binaries in bin/linux, bin/win,
bin mac-os-x, bin/hpux ...

Please prepare a DFSG-repack and remove *all* binary blobs. Using the
get-orig-source target will help with this. If you need a copy-template
feel free to ping me.

As this was already present in the old version, I'm letting this
through. I wonder how they got past ftpmasters anyway.

2. debian/patches/minus-sign-manpages.diff does not contain any notion
that it was forwarded upstream.

3. I see no good reason to not ship README.txt as is but to rename it to

4. Have you tried to have a look at #236049?

5. dpi is an acronym and should be capitalized in the description

Anyway, built, signed, uploaded.

Thanks for stepping up as new maintainer!
