One major problem: debian/copyright in your work says that the
project is licensed under GPL-2+, however the LICENSE file from
upstream only gives GPLv2 license text. The README file also does
mention that the whole project is licensed under GPLv2 **or

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

P.S. I took a look at upstream's debian/copyright file at
https://github.com/johanmalm/jgmenu/blob/master/debian/copyright ;,
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
2+ is wrong and must be fixed.

Fixed in new version uploaded to mentors.

Looking at https://mentors.debian.net/package/jgmenu/ , there are
several lintian warnings. This indicates that the grammar of your
debian/copyright file is not correct. Please fix these problems.

W: jgmenu source: missing-license-paragraph-in-dep5-copyright expat
(line 20)
W: jgmenu source: missing-license-paragraph-in-dep5-copyright gpl-2
(line 15)
W: jgmenu source: missing-license-paragraph-in-dep5-copyright gpl-2+
(line 63)

Hint: you either need to paste all license texts under each License:
field, or you use "License:xxx" placeholder in each section and provide
a separate "License: xxx" plus full license text that does not attach
with any "file section" at the bottom of the debian/copyright file.
Please read
again (especially section 5.2.1) for the correct way of fixing these
lintian warnings.

I think now it's fixed. Lintian warnings for copyright are clean.
