In debian/copyright, please check over the package carefully. I noticed
that the copyright for the overall package was listed as "One Laptop Per
Child", and that Gary was listed as the author only of moon.py.

I didn't see anything that indicated the package was at all written by
OLPC employees, so I'm confused as to the source of the message. Please
clarify the rationale, including where the information was taken from,
or remove the notice.

This isn't as important, but while you're at it, you should correct the
license header to point to /usr/share/common-licenses/GPL-2, and "of a
recent version " to "of version 2" for clarity. The wording currently
used is now frowned upon.

Please check your package for compliance with Standards Version,
make changes as needed, and increment the value in debian/control.in.
When doing so, please commit that change, *then* regenerate control from
control.in, rather than doing it all in one commit.
