Alternatively, one can download the package with dget using this command:
dget -x http://mentors.debian.net/debian/pool/main/c/conque/conque_2.3-3.dsc
I would be glad if someone uploaded this package for me.
"Paragraph separators (empty lines) and lines consisting only of
spaces and tabs are not allowed within field values or between fields.
Empty lines in field values are usually escaped by representing them

License field. This is what the Copyright field is for.
- You could avoid repeating the whole license text multiple times by
using an stand-alone license paragraph.

Well, why didn't you follow the lintian advice of using a real package
as the first alternative to the virtual package?
I see that you asked for a review at debian-l10n-english, but your long
description isn't what Justin proposed. In fact, it still contains a
reference to Powershell, to which I objected to previously.
Please use 2.3-1 as version number.
