so i have now switched from using dh directly to cdbs, assuming that this fixes the issue and to get cdbs addicts back on board :-)

Awesome (for me).

For fairness sake, I should probably mention that I am the only one in this team strongly pro CDBS, while it seems (though we have no hard numbers) that several others are opposed to it...

i see.
the first reaction on #debian-multimedia was: " *sigh* more cdbs..."

He.  I am not that active on IRC so didn't see that.

README.Debian is wrongly encoded: Your name contain a non-ASCII
character not encoded as UTF-8 which is mandatory these days.

i'll try to fix that.
i never completely figured how to do the UTF-8 think correctly...
iconv should do the trick....done!

Yeah, I keep seeing iconv being used but I never found that intuitive.

Personally I am fan of recode, which perhaps you might find useful too:

    recode latin1..utf8 debian/README.Debian

Changelog says the package is quilt'ified. That seems a superfluous comment to me, since there is nothing in the package (not even infrastructure files) for patching.

well yes:
i started from the original pd-zexy package, which had patches and
quiltified them.
when upgrading to the latest upstream release, these patches became
superfluous (since they were already included).
however, source/format now reads "3.0 (quilt)", so i thought that was
quiltification enough.

I imagined something like that had happened :-)

I suggest to instead mention something like "Use dpkg source format 3.0 (quilt)".

feel free to remove the line in the changelog.

thanks - I assumed I was allowed already (we do teamwork, right?), just wanted to discuss here both for the potential learning experience (of you or perhaps others following our conversation) and in case you actually had a different reason that the one I (correctly, it turns out) guessed. :-)

Now that you use CDBS, would you then mind me adding a couple of additional features of that - like auto-resolving build-dependencies, get-orig-source rule and copyright and licensing tracking?

sure, go ahead!

Will do. ...in a little while - my girlfriend wants me to look at some Ikiwiki hacking now :-)
