I do not intend to do a complete review but there seems still to be many
issues in the source package your provided:

* I'm not sure why you are using the version string "3.2.9-7+debian2".
Actually I am really curious about where did the digit seven (7) come from. I
can only find version 3.2.9 on upstream website and there is no seven...
Please adjust the version string so that it complies with deb-verison(7) [1].

* The lintian warning out-of-date-standards-version still exists. The most up-
to-date Standards-Version is 4.5.0, as you can find in Debian Policy.

* The lintian warning package-uses-old-debhelper-compat-version still exists.
The most up-to-date debhelper compat version is v13, not v11. Please read
details at [2].

* It seems that you are providing two udeb binary packages. Since udeb
packages are only used by debian-installer (d-i), could you please coordinate
with the d-i team [3] and ask them whether such udeb package is needed? My
guess is that this is probably not necessary at this time. If the answer turns
out to be yes, please let me know their reply.

* Almost all binary package entries in debian/control have this line:
    Provides: udev (= 1:${source:Version})
This is almost surely incorrect; the ${source:Version} substvar refers to the
source version of eudev, not udev. This line will likely not work.

* Package eudev still depends on s390-tools on arch:s390, however Debian no
longer ships packages under s390. Are you referring to s390x?

Since eudev is supposed to be a replacement of udev, we surely need more
extensive review on this source package. I see that you listed Adam Borowski
in the Uploaders list. Adam, can you continue with the package review as a
prospective co-maintainer?
