Yes, that's what the +dfsg in the upstream version is all about; I've
replaced the icons.c file, which contained binary blobs of possibly
unfree images. I've included a script to generate it, but not a
get-orig-source yet, as I'm not sure how to achieve the "this target may
be invoked in any directory" part of the policy. Any advices welcome.

I'm not sure what you mean. I did some changes before 1.0.21 was
released and checked them into git; the next version came before I had a
chance to submit that one, so I added a new changelog entry and recorded
further changes there. I actually prefer this to merging the changelog
entries together, but maybe I should have tagged the previous version as

I'll consider it, but right now I'm using the format generated by
git-format-patch, which I find quite convenient.
