 Thanks for uploading your source to mentors, I've looked it and found 
 some (but serious) problems for license as below, so you'd fix it before
 it will be uploaded into Debian repository.

 Its LICENSE file says,

 It's _4_ clause, and it is unfortunately not DFSG-free license.

 BSD-4-clause, old BSD license is not good.

 same as above.

 Those are MIT-style license. It's okay, but you described in

 It's not correct. You should check LICENSE file if it exists, at least

 Then, tiny thing. In debian/rules

 Please delete it, ugly. And, debian/watch cannot seek upstream source maybe
 since it is caused by upstream site has changed.

 Well, license problem is really hard thing for the maintainers, it's 
 tough, and not so interesting as coding ;) However, we Debian package
 maintainers should fix to distribute it (as you already know).

 I can help you to fix this problem, so once discuss it before working.
