Comment 3 Sandro Mani 2014-02-10 02:58:49 UTC
*blush* first time I managed to forget %description ...
As far as /usr/share/perl5/vendor_perl/Debian is concerned, that is owned by debhelper. So I don't think owning it again is necessary.

Comment 6 Zbigniew Jędrzejewski-Szmek 2014-02-10 03:16:55 UTC
Package is APPROVED.

Since this is for Fedora, please consider adding a sentence like
"This package is useful when building Debian on Fedora."

Also, it might be more grammatically correct to s/some useful tools for/some tools useful for/.

Comment 7 Sandro Mani 2014-02-10 11:29:54 UTC
Thanks! I'll tweak the description when importing. Let me know if I can review anything for you.
