Bug Description

Hi, I have filed a request for packaging in the official debian archive for udev-notify.
The deb package works on Debian, but does not meet the debian (and Ubuntu) packaging standards yet.
http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=670467
Would you please fix the package so that it could be included in Debian (and probably Ubuntu later) mirrors?

* Neither copyright nor changelog file
* Mixed up section and archive (maybe an Ubuntu thing)
* No source package at all. Binary package is built by a script
  tools/debian-package.sh plus Makefile
* Embedded code copy of pyudev instead of depending on python-pyudev
* /usr/bin/udev-notify necessarily starts a bash process (should
  either use /bin/sh instead of /bin/bash and exec or it should be
  replaced by be a symlink to /usr/share/udev-notify/udev-notify.py)
* Missing dependency (either "Depends" or at least "Recommends") on a
  notification-daemon. (I don't expect it to work without as it's
  stated on the website that a notification-daemon is needed.)
