I see that you use CDBS. Nice! :-DThen I suggest to use auto-resolving of build-dependencies (currently they are not quite optimal):
1) copy debian/control to debian/control.in 2) edit debian/control.in replacing cdbs build-dpendency with @cdbs@ 3) invoke the following command to regenerate debian/control: DEB_MAINTAINER_MODE=1 fakeroot debian/rules clean 4) Check what changed in the now auto-updated debian/control 5) Remove manual entries from debian/control.in now auto-resolved 6) Repeat steps 3-5 until satisfied 6) Commit debian/control.in 7) Commit debian/control (separately!) I also suggest to enable tracking of copyright/licensing changes: 1) Include /usr/share/cdbs/1/rules/utils.mk 2) touch debian/copyright_hints 3) Invoke the following to generate debian/copyright_newhints: DEB_MAINTAINER_MODE=1 debian/rules pre-build 4) Rename debian/copyright_newhints to debian/copyright_hints 5) Commit debian/copyright_hintsAfter that, at each build the source is scanned for copyright and licensing hints, and changes compared to the saved hints file trigger a warning (or a failure if DEB_MAINTAINER_MODE=1).
I also suggest you enable upstream-tarball handling - i.e. a get-orig-source build target:
1) Include /usr/share/cdbs/1/rules/upstream-tarball.mk2) Add hints to get upstream source (have a look inside the actual upstream-tarball.mk file, or look at e.g. jackd2 for an example)
