It's not trouble, just standard practice to put the flag after the DM
status is attained.
Unfortunately, I cannot in good conscience advocate your DM
application until I have further worked with you. Maybe after a few
more package uploads ;).

I understand the need for the build-depends, which is what I read from
your description above (pd-libdir has the same restriction). However,
puredata-import (the binary package) Depends on puredata << 0.43. Is
that intended? If so, please explain why.

Also, while we are on it, why the naming scheme change? Shouldn't it
be pd-import?
