Please note that I am not a DD, and not even a very experienced

It might be worth asking the Debian Python Module Team for
sponsoring, hence the CCing to them. Other than that, I did not really
have a look at the package itself, but I ran a pedantic Lintian check on
it and there are some nitpicks:

 $ lintian --pedantic -EI ../python-gnatpython_54-1_amd64.changes 
 P: python-gnatpython source: debian-control-has-unusual-field-spacing
 line 19
 I: python-gnatpython source: debian-watch-file-is-missing

 I: python-gnatpython: capitalization-error-in-description python Python

 usr/share/man/man1/mainloop.1.gz adress address
 P: python-gnatpython-doc: no-upstream-changelog
 I: python-gnatpython-doc: spelling-error-in-copyright GNU Public
 License GNU General Public License
 I: python-gnatpython-doc: capitalization-error-in-description python
 P: python-gnatpython-doc: example-unusual-interpreter

It would be nice to fix at least the spelling errors. Also, the watch
file is always a nice thing to have where possible. It allows other
developers to easily download the .orig.tar, and of course is used to
warn the maintainer of new versions.
