Thanks for all you work on the icon set. Here are some comments:

 * The icons are released with the following restriction:

     As an author, I would appreciate a reference to my authorship of the Silk
     icon set contents within a readme file or equivalent documentation for the
     software which includes the set or a subset of the icons contained within.

   Please add this restriction to the copyright file. A Comment: after the
   License: block is enough.

   Since the two readme files only mention CC-BY-2.5, please also add a line to
   the Comment: explaining that although CC-BY-3.0 is mentioned nowhere, it is
   actually available under CC-BY-3.0 according to upstream's website.

   As I read CC-BY-3.0 it is enough to mention to license or add a link back to
   it. Since this is done in d/copyright, there is no need to patch a copy of
   CC-BY-3.0 in. If the FTP masters want a copy of (or a link to) the license,
   we would need to repack the orig tarball anyway to include it there.

 * The debian/* paragraph in the copyright file needs to be moved after the *
   paragraph. CF-1.0 contains the following note:

     Multiple Files paragraphs are allowed. The last paragraph that matches a
     particular file applies to it. More general paragraphs should therefore be
     given first, followed by more specific overrides.

 * Please specify which source package version you want to use. I don't
   care if you want to use 1.0 or 3.0 (quilt), but make it explicit in

 * I think there is no point in installing readme.txt as it contains no
   additional information. For readme.html to be useful, the image links need to
   be patched. After this has been fixed, registering readme.html with doc-base
   would be nice.

 * Please keep the Debian revsion at -1 until the version hit the archive.

With a watch file, uscan does the repacking for us with the --repack switch.
Since there is a watch file now, I think debian/README.source is unnecessary.
