Hi Roberto,

Thank you so much for your help. Your support, encouragement and advice
have been extremely helpful and led me to eventually work on things
I had not previously considered.

I think I'm done with the lintian cleanup. Ideally, Sword would be
completely lintian clean, but actually I let lintian still reporting a
tag about the missing control file (I: no-symbols-control-file). I
created such a symbols file, libsword builds on my system (amd64)
without errors, lintian is clean, but I'm worried about FTBFS on other

So yes, I would appreciate any feedback on my work, and if the
packaging is correct, sponsorship and upload of the package.

Best regards,
domcox <dominique at corbex.org>
