help with lintian output

Hash: SHA1

Hi, I've built a deb package and lintian complains about some stuff I
can't really figure out why. I've read the man-pages and lintian html
documentation but couldn't find a detailed explanation of lintian output.

| W: lilypond source: native-package-with-dash-version
This is of course true but I don't understand why this should generate a
warning because the majority of files from the main tree have a name of
the form $packagename_x.y-z_$arch.deb

| W: lilypond source: changelog-should-mention-nmu
How exactly am I supposed to indicate that it's a Non-maintainer upload?
The changelog reads:
| lilypond (2.4.5-1) unstable; urgency=low
|   * New upstream stable release.
|   * Non-maintainer upload.
|   * Build-depends for mftrace (>= 1.1.5-1) due to incompatible changes
|     in option names (--format is not available in versions <=1.0.34-1).
|   * Changed wrong source path for mv action in debian/rules.

On second thought, maybe putting the second line first would solve the

| W: lilypond source: source-nmu-has-incorrect-version-number 2.4.5-1
What does this warning actually refer to? The upstream version is 2.4.5
so 2.4.5-1 for debian should be okay, shouldn't it.

Thanks for any suggestions as always. And before I get any RTFM shouts,
I realize I haven't read the appropriate sections of the policy manual
yet and will do so soon but I don't think it's too overbearing to
request help for now.
