I reviewed the Debian packaging at and it looks good to me. Now we
just sit and wait for it to be processed in the Debian NEW queue:

If reuse wants to be perfect, please consider shipping a man page so
users can run 'man reuse' on their system. If the output of 'reuse
--help' and 'reuser --version' follow normal conventions, you should
be able to generate a man page with help2man
