OK, so this is the package:


But it seems it is not the new version, as it does not have the symbols file.

Anyway, some more comments:

- You might want to keep the epoch so that people installing those
packages can upgrade to this version when it lands in debian.
- Please use the alioth list as the maintainer (check any other team
package [eg, csound] for the name and address). In general please read
the guidelines in the wiki[1]
- Please drop the builddeb override, xz is the default.
- On i386, we need to disable sse, as it is not guaranteed to be
available on all hosts. I think it can be loaded at runtime by using
the hardware capabilities feature of glibc linker:
   - Compile the package twice, once with and once without sse.
   - Ship the non-sse version in /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/
   - Ship the sse version in /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/sse2
   - Then ld.so will choose the appropriate version at runtime (see
the ld.so manpage for details).
- debian/copyright needs dates updated (2010-2014 for the upstream part).
- You might want to forward the patch upstream.

This library looks very cool :)
