I am no expert at LSB headers, I already broke them once :)

Looks reasonable. I rebased `wip/debian/2.91' on `master' and added
a bit of polishing. But what concerns me is that you drastically removed
numer of patches (very good thing, in general) in
`debian/patches/series', but left them lying in `debian/patches'.

I believe it is just a `oversight, but I ask you to make commit, that
removes these patches yourself. Just to make sure.

Also, please use same name in both `debian/changelog' and
`debian/control'. Otherwise lintian believes that release is NMU.

Best regards, Dmitry Bogatov, a Debian Developer.
