I'm afraid I have some further remarks:

mechanism and so I think you can remove dh-exec from the

only for the *-dbg package you should explicitly specify
"Priority: extra". The point is that priority extra packages will
be excluded from some QA checks which we do not really want in

You created a new changelog paragraph. For not yet uploaded packages
this is at best confusiing even if your *-1 entry claims that it was
uploaded to unstable (which it was not - at best this should be
"UNRELEASED"). Also the consequence of this new entry is, that the
ITP bug is not closed by an upload if I would upload as is. You can
easily verify this effect when looking at the tasks page which is
not linking to an according WNPP bug (in contrast to for instance
liblevmar-dev). The reason is that only the latest paragraph of
d/changelog is parsed.
So my advise would be to *not* log your actual changes inside
d/changelog until we have *really* the first version inside Debian.
There is sufficient information inside the Git commit logs. Just
remove the 3.2.3-2 paragraph and it also makes sense to "target"
with 3.2.3-1 at UNRELEASED while leaving me as the sponsor the
task to switch this to unstable once I decide to upload. This
is (should be??) written in Debian Science policy document and
helps other team members to see immediately that a package was not
Regarding the SoB sponsering I told you I have added the *-dev package
to the relevant development tasks of Debian Science which can be seen
for example in mathematics-dev task.
Could you now please add an according entry at the SoB Wiki page to
make sure you understood the mechanism I would like to push via SoB.
