Hi Kevin,

Alexander Zangerl is Debian's packager in the past;  I'm CC-ing him.

The end of docs/README.developers says

    Keep an eye on Debian's packaging, especially what patches they have to
    apply, and the results of their Lintian checker, which even includes
    spelling errors in man pages and binaries.


    Perhaps some nmh developer that uses Debian, or Ubuntu?, could provide
    package-building commands, including lintian(1), for Makefile.am so
    Lintian's complaints are known before release.

I assume if we grabbed the debian directory, e.g.
https://sources.debian.org/src/nmh/1.7.1-12/debian/, then we could have
a stab at building the .deb on a Debian machine; I have one to hand.

I've had a look at the Lintian output and fixed a spelling mistake.
It also says debian/control could do with a Homepage definition:
Alexander, it's https://www.nongnu.org/nmh/

That README also mentions a quick overview of what's shipping what

    A useful overview of what third parties are shipping which release
    is available at https://repology.org/project/nmh/versions with a
    quick overview on the Badges tab which shows

Cheers, Ralph.
