Sorry. I should have included the details which were sent along with
my original RFS to the debian-mentors mailing list. I've now included
them for convenience:
* Package name : slimrat
Version : 1.0-1
Upstream Author : Přemek Vyhnal <email@example.com>
Upstream Author : Tim Besard <firstname.lastname@example.org>
* URL : http://code.google.com/p/slimrat/
* License : MIT/X
Section : net
It builds this binary package:
slimrat - Application for automated downloading from file hosters
The package appears to be lintian clean - except for some --pedantic
The upload is in response to this ITP: 565904
The package can be found on mentors.debian.net:
- URL: http://mentors.debian.net/debian/pool/main/s/slimrat
- Source repository: deb-src http://mentors.debian.net/debian unstable
main contrib non-free
- dget http://mentors.debian.net/debian/pool/main/s/slimrat/slimrat_1.0-1.dsc

I'm not sure what the upstream goal is. I'll admit it did look a
little unorthodox in terms of source layout. I'll see if I can contact
the upstream author to see what their plans are. From what I can tell,
they don't seem to have any plans to change it... but I'll report back
when I have more info.
