Thanks for clarifying!

The package looks pretty good, but there are a few rough spots left.  Lintian

...which are easily fixed, and would be worth sending upstream too.

As long as you're bumping the debhelper compatibility to 7, have you considered
switching over to a dh-style rules file as well?  That would allow you to drop
the Build-Depends on cdbs and quilt, and bring the rules file down to a

        dh $@ --with autotools_dev

There should be a Build-Depends on autotools-dev.  Right now it's brought in by
a Recommends: from cdbs, but it's better off being explicit.

When I build it, the documentation is duplicated in /usr/share/doc/wavemon
*and* /usr/share/wavemon.  Not sure what's putting it in that second directory,
where it certainly doesn't belong; this is also automatically fixed if you use
a dh rules file.
