Thanks for the quick review. I will see when I find the time to address your comments. Currently I'm very busy, so I'm addressing only one of your comments now.

echo "   snetmanmon is copyright (c) 2015 by Alexander Holler" >debian/copyright
echo "" >>debian/copyright
echo "License:" >>debian/copyright
echo "" >>debian/copyright
cat LICENSE >> debian/copyright

nack. the copyright file should be not auto generated, because ftpmasters will reject it.
(and maybe in machine-readable format)

The copyright for snetmanmon isn't autogenerated, it's part of the README. What I'm generating here is the file which is necessary for the debian package, mainly because I don't want to have the GPL in the standard LICENSE file and in debian/copyright. And that is something I likely will not change. Otherwise I would end up with various files for various packaging systems which all are containing the same text of the license.

I wonder what ftpmasters would reject. The resulting package has the usual debian copyright file and the source (the contents of my git repo) contains the standard README and LICENSE.
