Erm i read the reject happened because of missing pseudo headers ...
thats true!

--- http://www.debian.org/Bugs/Reporting ---


The first part of the bug report is the pseudo-header which contains
information about what package and version your bug report applies to.
The pseudo-header must start on the first line of the body. In other
words, the first line of the message body should say:

Package: <packagename>

Replace <packagename> with the name of the package which has the bug.

The second line of the message should say:

Version: <packageversion>

Replace <packageversion> with the version of the package. Please don't
include any text here other than the version itself, as the bug
tracking system relies on this field to work out which releases are
affected by the bug.

You need to supply a correct Package line in the pseudo-header in
order for the bug tracking system to deliver the message to the
package's maintainer. See this example for information on how to find
this information.

subject gets the bug title and first line of the body *MUST* be the
start of pseudo headers

Package: kjobviewer
Version: ...
