  1. In this last version, I've defined debhelper-compat in first place, to avoid the debexpo bug.
    MR pending to review:
      https://salsa.debian.org/mentors.debian.net-team/debexpo/merge_requests/57
    
    
    My warnings excuses:
      I testsuite-autopkgtest-missing: it's not avaliable upstream
      X debian-watch-does-not-check-gpg-signature: not available .asc files in the releases. I've contacted with upstream suggesting to add the signatures.
      W manpage-has-errors-from-man: running lintian/man-db with newer versions of groff-base stop showing the warning. So I've ignored it.
    
    
    The new upstream releases are taken from a fork on github. I can't contact with original author or track recent activity on the net.

  1. * "X debian-watch-does-not-check-gpg-signature" I think upstream releases are not signed as mentioned in https://wiki.debian.org/debian/watch#GitHub
    
    * "W manpage-has-errors-from-man" doesn't shows up when running Lintian on recent versions (fixed at groff-base>=1.22.4, buster).
    
    * "I hardening-no-bindnow". It can be solved building the package with DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS="hardening=+bindnow". Should this flag go into debian/rules?

  1. 4 bugs are closed. "mentors" says only 2 :-/
    
    debian/changelog shoud look like:
      4   * New maintainer. Closes: #921960
      5   * New upstream version 0.9.16. Closes: #805100, #857498, #902893
    
    PS:
    
    It seems that most opened bugs should be closed (ignored?) because of lack of information and age.
     * #672435 Should to be closed, because of new upstream documentation explicitly mentions IPv6 is enabled when "-localhost".
     * #672449 Sadly still afecting new upstream versions
    
    Thanks for reviewing

  2. It's my first package pushed to mentors.
    
    Lintian excuses:
     I testsuite-autopkgtest-missing: No tests upstream
     X debian-watch-does-not-check-gpg-signature: May be fixed, just noticed. "GPG ID: 421BB3B45C6067F8"
     W manpage-has-errors-from-man: Can't reproduce problem (seems to affect an specific MACOS page)
     I hardening-no-bindnow: Need help

  3. And the "UNRELEASED"... Probably it should go to "experimental".
    
    I've also created the git repo importing all previous releases.
    Uploaded to salsa. All "default" pipeline jobs passed.
