I don't like installing stuff with no debian packaging

copied the sources in an example package
PYTHONPATH=. ./bin/debtemplate rfs

really nice

I guess so

I tried it with two different packages and I really like it!

Just a nitpick/request:
{% if upload_count == 1 -%}

this makes impossible to understand an ITP when the maintainer badly
adds many revisions to changelog
(e.g.  when the maintainer grabs the changelog from a ppa or somewhere else)

I would suggest adding an rmadison -u debian packagename to see if it is
already part of Debian or not

Just my little 2 cents, and I would be happy to propose/advertise/sponsor such
tool if Paul has the same opinion we might even add some wording in mentors rfs
page :)
