Sorry for taking so long for the rumor package. I wanted to upload it,
and stumbled over this lintian warning:

W: rumor source: changelog-should-mention-nmu

This is obvious. Ryan, would you mind taking over maintainance of rumor?
In that case, please add yourself in the Uploaders filed.

The other warning one is:

E: rumor: package-contains-info-dir-file usr/share/info/dir.gz
N:    This package contains a file named dir or dir.old, possibly compressed,
N:    in /usr/share/info. This is the directory (or backup) of info pages and
N:    is generated automatically by install-info when a package containing
N:    info documentation is installed. Some upstream build systems create it
N:    automatically, but it must not be included in a package since it needs
N:    to be generated dynamically based on the installed info files on the
N:    system.
N:    Severity: important, Certainty: certain

This is pretty serious, as it breaks listing the info pages on the
installed system.
