Note that some files are claimed copyright just by "20xx INRIA" and
"20xx INRIA (France)"
As copyright must be verbatim, you need to addtionalyl write this in 
Not sure about all those other variants of INRIA: Are they different
organisattions (like a subsidiary) of just different writing of the same
one? In the first case, you need to have one stanca for every different
(hint: license-reconcile might help here)

Yes, this will work.
Speaking about external sources... I see that there is also cpython in
the source. As cpython is packaged, can it be also removed via
Files-Exluded (as you said, you're repacking already, so we can reduce
the size of the source package even more)

Older stuff already mentioned, but still not fixed:
  - many versioned build dependencies are already satisfied since
  oldstable. As thus those old version constraint can be removed,
  especially as this is a new package.

Many thanks for putting doxygen generation into build-indep!

Ok, otherwise package is ready... So please fix the last bits,
especially the copyright remarks, and then it will be ready.
