I took a look at it, but IMO it's not completely ready for upload.

- missing debian/source/format (most new packages have "3.0 (quilt)")
- missing Vcs-* headers in d/control
- installing the README seems useless, we normally skip that kind of
- upstream copyright year missing in debian/control
- license: GPL doesn't make me happy (which one?) but that's an
  upstream question
- short description: should be a noun phrase, and no full stop at the
- libtest-exception-perl seems unnecessary in Depends (comes from
- IO::Uncompress::Gunzip needs "perl (>= 5.10) | libio-compress-perl
  | libio-compress-zlib-perl"

  additional tests but that's of course debatable

I'm adding this notes to debian/changelog and set the distribution
