Hey Jack,

You asked on IRC for feedback on your packages, but left before I could
reply :-)

So sending it here instead:

# wuzz
debian/control: The long description is not very understandable (when I
saw the upstream project last week I was completely confused as to what
it was).
debian/control: Short description: is it really a CLI? I thought it has
a curses interface.
debian/TODO: Does not seem relevant to install this.

# gocui
debian/rules: You should probably exclude _examples.
debian/golang-github-jroimartin-gociu.examples: examples are not being
installed, because the filename is wrong (missing -dev)

# Both packages
debian/*: when you generate only one binary package, you don't need to
files with the package name (wuzz.examples vs examples)
debian/control: To be able to use XS-Go-Import-Path, you need at least
dh-golang 1.10~. This is not important for sid, but it is for backports.
debian/docs: missing to install README.md
debian/watch: syntax errors (run uscan --report)
Lintian overrides do not seem necessary.
