It looks from https://packages.qa.debian.org/x/xiphos.html that the 
Lintian errors are for version 3.1.5.  The fact that errors would be 
found with 3.1.5 would not surprise anyone on this list, I suspect.

  * [2012-04-28] xiphos 3.1.5+dfsg-1 MIGRATED to testing

We need to have them look at the latest source.  anyone know who to 
contact about that?

As a reminder, we have sword+xiphos+bibletime packages for Ubuntu 13.10 
and 14.04 available at:


BTW, as 13.10 has passed out of support I don't intend to build further 
packages for it.  If needed, I will build for 14.04.
