I have some nits to pick:

  * Look carefully at the diff to init_rs.c; did you test this? You have
    DEBIAN_PATH in one place and DEBIANPATH in another.

  * Files in /usr must not be conffiles. If /usr/share/clif/clif.ini
    needs to be edited, it must be somewhere under /etc. Is the current
    /usr/share/clif/clif.ini just an example, or is it a reasonable

  * Your changelog entry won't automatically close bugs: you need a
    colon after "Closes" in order to make that work, and you need to
    replace the instance of "Closed" with "Closes". The developer's
    reference has the exact regex used. You can test this by looking for
    a Closes: line in the .changes file when the build is complete.

    (No need for a new version number just due to tweaking the
    changelog, IMHO.)

Yes, QA uploads are a good thing: adoption is better of course, but not
always practical. Feel free to continue.
