check the log thoroughly to learn how things should be done.

The file remains inside the package. You need to do something like:

Besides some spelling issues that could be fixed in a quilt patch the main
remaining issue is:
I: checkit-tiff: arch-dep-package-has-big-usr-share 14907kB 99%
N: The package has a significant amount of architecture-independent data
N: (over 4MB, or over 2MB and more than 50% of the package) in /usr/share
N: but is an architecture-dependent package. This is wasteful of mirror
N: space and bandwidth since it means distributing multiple copies of this
N: data, one for each architecture.
N: If the data in /usr/share is not architecture-independent, this is a
N: Policy violation that should be fixed by moving the data elsewhere
N: (usually /usr/lib).
N: Refer to Debian Developer's Reference section 6.7.5
N: (Architecture-independent data) for details.
N: Severity: wishlist, Certainty: certain
You get this when using
$ cat ~/.lintianrc
(or manually specify lintian -i -I). This should be fixed by creating
an additional binary package (for instance checkit-tiff-data or so).
