For importing an upstream tar please always use

    gbp import-orig --pristine-tar <your_tarball>

which creates a pristine-tar branch.  You can re-do this and ignore
the warning about existent upstream tag.

The changelog owner and the Uploaders field should be *identical*.

It is what it says - you need to add a proper license.  If you do
not understand the lintian warnings use `lintian -i`.  I recommend

$ cat ~/.lintianrc
## show-overrides=yes

The latest policy version is

   Standards-Version: 3.9.8

Remove this file and put the information into debian/copyright.

Write a manpage.

I think that's connected to the "NMU" question...
Hope this helps - please keep on asking on list in case you need
further help.

Kind regards
