Hi Tobias

Thanks for updating engauge-digitizer in Debian. I've uploaded your package.

A couple of things I noticed looking at the package that you may as well fix in 
git now so that they are not forgotten the next time.

> Build-Depends: dpkg-dev (>= 1.16.1~), …

Every supported version of Debian has a new-enough dpkg-dev that you can drop 
that Build-Dep at this stage.

> Build-Depends: …, debhelper (>= 13), debhelper-compat (= 13), …

Specifying the debhelper-compat virtual package automatically means debhelper 
(>= 13) so you should remove the "debhelper (>= 13)" entry as it's not needed. 

> Standards-Version: 4.4.0

Current S-V is 4.5.0. I can't see anything of relevance that has changed in 
this time, but given you've bumped S-V anyway, it's worth going the whole way.

Lintian additionally has some suggestions that are worth doing, including:

* forwarding the patches upstream
* adding the manual page upstream
* adding "Rules-Requires-Root: no" to debian/control

Neither lintian nor I are sure why there is a manual page digitizer(1) 
included in the package. Is that symlink really needed?

Please remember to push this version to git.
