Ah right.  I downloaded the orig.tar.gz but the README, NEWS and
possibly even the AUTHORS all looks to relate to the Wavelan plugin
which I see you've then had to fix.

This really should go upstream - and if the original author can't fix
them then er, you have to wonder why we would package it.

I think you probably want to mention this to the actual author Wit Wilinski
<madman at linux.bydg.org>.

I can see however that you've tried to fix it up for him which is

A few notes on the packaging:
	- You can't reuse 0.1-1 twice in the changelog.  You can just
	  add all your changes to one stanza in the changelog and call
	  it 0.1-1 in this case as 0.1-1 hasn't hit the archive yet.

	- In debian/control, it might be worth adding in something about
	  cpufreq or CPU scaling to the description and maybe mentioning
	  that it's mostly useful for laptops.

But no, it's good.  I can rebuild it and it seems to work.

I think you should talk to upstream before we think about putting it
into Debian but thanks for your help here.

The package itself seems to work though I've not tried it on my laptop
