[debian-tex-maint@lists.debian.org in CC for just announcing the missing
 of fancyheadings.sty]

You are right fancyheadings.sty shows up only in tetex-extra and apt-file
does not find a hit in texlive.  Would you be so kind to write a bug report
against texlive because if I understand it right it claims to be a superset
of tetex which has exceptions obviousely.  I do not regard fancyheadings.sty
as a great showstopper but it just happens to be used probably in other
source packages.

* The way you not just rename upstream's debian/ to debian-upstream/,

  debian-upstream/createBALLVIEWDEB looks very un-debianish to me. I
  really suggest you just ignore debian-upstream; I very much doubt it
  would pass the ftp-master checks for entering the Debian archive
  as well.

I normally advise upstream to not ship a debian directory in their
upstream tarball.

Kind regards
