I also used pkgkde-symbolshelper to update the symbols files, so the
results should be the same.

Yes, but there is still room for improvement of the package.

Before the next upload, please change the copyright file to use
copyright-format 1.0 (aka DEP-5):


You can then use Files-Excluded in the copyright file to automatically
remove the _tmp files from the man page directory when using uscan.


Also update the patches to use DEP-3 headers:


There are also many lintian issues that should be addressed in the next

Kind Regards,
