Hi Willem,

Please use more specific subjects in emails.

Typo. I have fixed it in git repo.

>   * debian/compat
>     - bump to 11.

Few notes:
1) Lintian warning should be fixed:

   W: jabber-muc source: vcs-field-uses-not-recommended-uri-format \
       vcs-git git at salsa.debian.org:xmpp-team/jabber-muc.git

   Just use https:// URL for Vcs-Git. See package jabberd2 as example.

2) Lintian note "no-homepage-field" makes me look for the source of the source
   files. And I failed to find it. File README.source exists but says nothing
   about origin of tarball with sources...

   Could you add the Homepage field in debian/control? Even a link to site at
   web.archive.org (if exists) is better than nothing.

   But if there is (even not maintained) website with links to all tarballs
   for jabber-muc it is good to have also debian/watch file. Just in case.

3) Lintian shows note: insecure-copyright-format-uri 

   Just use https:// URL.

4) You may update years for section 'Files: debian/*' in debian/copyright

> You can find it here
> https://mentors.debian.net/debian/pool/main/j/jabber-muc/jabber-muc_0.8-6.dsc

Tarball jabber-muc_0.8.orig.tar.gz is differ from one in Debian archive.
Please be more careful next time.

You may use something like:
dget -d http://deb.debian.org/debian/pool/main/j/jabber-muc/jabber-muc_0.8-5.dsc
to get tarball with package sources from Debian archive.

Best wishes,
