Bug#809623: RFS: telegram-purple/1.2.4-1 [ITP]

Dear mentors,

I am looking for a sponsor for my package "telegram-purple"

 * Package name    : telegram-purple
   Version         : 1.2.4-2
   Upstream Author : Matthias Jentsch <mtthsjntsch@gmail.com>
 * URL             : https://github.com/majn/telegram-purple
 * License         : GPL2+
   Programming Lang: C
   Section         : net

It builds those binary packages:

  telegram-purple - Purple plugin to support Telegram
  telegram-purple-dbg - Debug symbols, auto-generated by dpkg-buildpackage

To access further information about this package, please visit the following URL:


Alternatively, one can download the package with dget using this command:

dget -x http://mentors.debian.net/debian/pool/main/t/telegram-purple/telegram-purple_1.2.4-2.dsc

Changes since the last upload:
  - d/changelog collapsed
  - d/control fixes git url, explains name
  - d/rules cleaned up
- d/README.source created with extensive documentation of packaging procedure and ~choices - checked with "check-all-the-things" that there are no critical bugs. All other things will be handled eventually in the next upstream version.
  - d/upstream/metadata added

I'm confused as to how to put a comment into the d/control file.
- A "raw" comment (line prefixed by the '#' character) is not machine-readable and will be ignored. Furthermore, it is deprecated by some tool (forgot which one).
- The Policy explicitly allows "X[BCS]*-Comment" fields:
  However, 'cme check dpkg' doesn't recognize this as valid.
  Not sure what to do, I'm going with X-Comment and #810023
