OK. All problems mentioned above should be fixed now, both in git repo
and source package
on mentors.debian.net. (Many thanks to pino@ and perezmeyer.)

Future development and upstream maintenance is likely be taken by
Deepin Co.,Ltd. if
Canonical quits since Deepin software depends on this package heavily.
Pkg-deepin team
is working together with deepin upstream on it. As a result I believe
n) should not be a blocker
for package uploading.

Package maintainer was set back to pkg-deepin since we are taking care
of it in reality. Thanks
for the suggestion.

After enabling the test, this package would fail one test in Debian
Unstable. Investigations show
that it is a bug of Qt 5.7. [1][2] This bug has been fixed since Qt 5.8.
Qt in Ubuntu already have this bug fixed by backporting upstream patch.

With no visible time schedule for new Qt in Debian, I choose to
disable that test for now and re-enable
it after Qt 5.9 enters unstable. Meanwhile, anyone interested please
consider reviewing the package
again and help sponsor this package if you feel comfortable. This
package is blocking the workflow of
pkg-deepin team and it would be great if we could get the problem
fixed in a reasonable time period.
