You still have make use of the string "Upstream Author(s)". But either
it's one author or more :) So by using the above, you trigger the
lintian error. Just remove the "(s)" for your case.

Please check the description of this lintian error. I cannot remember to
have triggered this during my packaging attempts. You probably want to
check, that OSRA is building with -fPIC and you might re-check with my
own debian/rules file.

BTW: Why do you use control.in and rules.in instead of control/rules?
