Hi, Thomas,

Thank you for your careful review.

change the target distribution to "experimental"

I changed to use CC-by-SA 3.0,  as the upstream software. and changed
debian/copyright file, if any inappropriate, please let me know.

I've change maintainer to IME packaging team and uploader to me.

It's my mistake, I've forgot to sync debian/copyright files with sunpinyin.
and now, license part of debian/copyright of sunpinyin and ibus-sunpinyin
are same.

I've changed to use LGPL-2.1 or CDDL

> 4/ Still in your debian/copyright, I can see:
> Files: *
> Copyright: 2007, Sun Microsystems, Inc.
> This is wrong because you should write:
> Copyright: (c) 2007, Sun Microsystems, Inc.
I've added (c) to  debian/copyright in three packages, but I think it is not
forcible, please see http://dep.debian.net/deps/dep5/

Hi, Kov,  would you like to explain this and double check the copyright
information in these package ?

> Let me know what you think of all the above,

I've uploaded these package to mentors.d.n, would you like to review again ?
