Please don't tag releases yourself. The one who sponsors you does the

changelog is clearly wrong, if it's your first upload to debian (you
should only have one version in it). Also, you don't close any ITP. Have
you filed one ? It's not mandatory (I think), but still good policy.

control / control.in:
Uploaders: <code>RUBY_EXTRAS_TEAM</code>
We are going to move off the RUBY_EXTRAS_TEAM variable soon. In the
meantime, please just put:
Debian Ruby Extras Maintainers <pkg-ruby-extras-maintainers at lists.alioth.debian.org>

Doesn't deplace has a homepage ? You could mention it in the

use a manpages file (for dh_installman) instead.

don't use the uploaders rule:
include /usr/share/ruby-pkg-tools/1/rules/uploaders.mk

why doesn't it work ? please add a bug number so everybody knows.
if it's just a problem with sf.net, you have to use the wrapper on

Also, there's this lintian warning:
W: deplate: manpage-has-errors-from-man usr/share/man/man1/deplate.1.gz
454: warning: can't find numbered character 195

Nice work, apart from the above problems. :-)

Well, it does seem clear to me, but feel free to add this and update the
website. Also, you should consider using dch to modify the changelog.
