Now we have sayonara inside the Debian Multimedia repository, I think
there are only a few small things to tidy up:

1. Debian tag: Unfortunately when you import a .dsc, a Debian tag is
created against the debian (master) branch. This tag should reflect the
state of the repository when the package is uploaded. As sayonara has
not been uploaded yet, we should delete this tag (no-one else will have
pulled it yet, so no danger).
$ git push --delete origin debian/0.9.0-1
$ git tag -d debian/0.9.0-1
According to https://wiki.debian.org/DebianMultimedia/DevelopPackaging,
after upload the sponsor should tag the repository (sometimes it is
forgotten, so keep an eye out for that).

2. Maintainer: Also according to
https://wiki.debian.org/DebianMultimedia/DevelopPackaging, the
maintainer should be the Team, and interested team members (e.g. you)
should be "Uploader". Please update debian/control.

3. Package Short Description: This should start with "small" rather than
"Small" and does not need the full stop at the end (debian/control).

4. Package Long Description: This looks like a list "It holds a lot of
features like .....". It would be better if each new line in the list
started with "* ". Alternatively, it could be a standard paragraph with
lots of commas (e.g. It holds a lot of features like many supported
music and playlist formats, directory view, ....). I think I prefer the

5. Now that sayonara is in the Debian Multimedia Team repository, we
need Vcs fields in debian/control:
Vcs-Git: https://anonscm.debian.org/git/pkg-multimedia/sayonara.git
Vcs-Browser: https://anonscm.debian.org/cgit/pkg-multimedia/sayonara.git
This way, people can follow links from the package tracker to inspect
the repository, or find out how to clone it.

The package is still building here, and I would like to install it and
have a little play. Assuming nothing goes wrong with that, with the
above changes I think it is ready to ask a sponsor to take a look at it.
