One major problem: debian/copyright in your work says that the whole
project is licensed under GPL-2+, however the LICENSE file from
upstream only gives GPLv2 license text. The README file also does not
mention that the whole project is licensed under GPLv2 **or later**.

Could you please contact upstream to clarify the case? The best output
would be adding a "the whole project is licensed under GPLv2 or later"
sentense in the README file, which would make things clear to everyone.

P.S. I took a look at upstream's debian/copyright file at
https://github.com/johanmalm/jgmenu/blob/master/debian/copyright , in
which the upstream only mentioned GPL-2, not GPL-2+. If upstream is
only willing to release the whole project under GPL-2-only, using GPL-
2+ is wrong and must be fixed.

Fixed in new version uploaded to mentors.
