Well, mentors.d.o is also a good thing if you already have a sponsor:
You learn how to use dput/dupload and the sponsor can get a quick
overview and possibly see main issues even without downloading the
source package. So I'm happy with the .dsc being uploaded there. :-)

Thanks for your work!

Building the package currently to have a look...

One thing I noticed via mentors.d.n directly were the two lintian
warnings. They're not a problem (now), but they're usually also easy
to fix. (So I'd upload it anyway if those two warnings are the only
issues. :-)

P.S.: I'm currently in holidays and will be offline later, may be
until Wednesday evening... Christian: If you find time before that and
I haven't uploaded yet, feel free to upload if you think it's ready.
