I only had a look at vim-srt so far. There seems to be a small issue
with the copyright information; you chose to release the packaging under
the GPL-3+, which is incompatible with the GPL-2. Why don't you use the
GPL-2+ instead?

Also, to comply with DEP-5, please use a versioned Format URL (it might
also be a good idea to add an Upstream-Contact header).

You should also bump the standards version to 3.9.2 (after making the
appropriate changes, if any) and use debhelper compatibility level 8 (in
debian/compat and debian/control).

Finally, did you have a look at how other vim add-ons are packaged?
vim-latexsuite comes to mind, you mind be interested in their
debian/rules file.
