Are these libraries required for some end-user application(s) that you 
intend to package? I saw one that mentioned Kalkun, any others?

(In the future, I recommend to always mention this in the ITP. It helps 
to justify why the package should be included in Debian.)

Some other comments from briefly looking through the repositories:

- If the package is not yet in Debian, then IMO don't need to show 
multiple versions in the changelog. For example, 
php-codeigniter-framework can just have 3.1.13-1 as the "Initial 
release", and no other changes need to be listed.

- If there are no patches, then you can just remove the debian/patches/ 
folder completely.

- I noticed there is no pristine-tar branch, is it not used? It seems 
most packages in the team are using pristine-tar.

- If there are tests from upstream, please run them during the package 

- Also please include debian/tests/ autopkgtests if possible. Even a 
trivial test is ok (if marked as Superficial).

I will try to look in more detail later, and give a more thorough review.
