Today I saw mc had few lintian errors.
I'd try to make something with it...

This is the changelog:
	- bump standards version to 3.8.1
	- bump compat to 7
	- Add co-maintainer (me)
	- rename debian/patches/all.series to debian/patches/series to be lintian clean.
	- change copyright link in debian/copyright to an existent file
	- Add "Section: debug" for mc-dbg in debian/control
	- change deprecated "dh_clean -k" to "dh_prep" in debian/rules

	-Add ${misc:Depends} in debian/control
		(I don't understand how to do with mc-dbg)
	-patch l10n doc files with '\&' to fix issue with . or ' characters
		at the start of lines on literal text.
		(I try it, but it move the issue somewhere else... I think we
		must reformat man pages)

	-make a fr-l10n man page (I think, I can do that)

This is the new lintian output:
W: mc source: debhelper-but-no-misc-depends mc
