Mr. Courtes,

I have attached updated patches as per your review, sir.

Regarding the union-package `breeze`, it seems that `apt search breeze` shows that there are packages like `breeze-icon-theme`, `breeze-cursor-theme`, etc. and then there is one meta-package `breeze`. Personally, as I am going to send in a patch for kdenlive that fixes the breeze-icon-theme startup complaint issue, it'd make it easier if I could just add the `breeze` union package. But I could probably define a union input package in the (inputs ...) field.

Section 9, reads:

  If the Program does not specify a version number of this License, you
  may choose any version ever published by the Free Software Foundation.

In this case, we use ‘gpl2+’ as the license.

The general convention is to stick to the upstream name:

Regarding the union package, perhaps we can actually leave it up to
users to install both breeze-assets and breeze-icons if they want?
After all, since these are separate packages upstream, we don’t have to
provide a union of both.  WDYT?
