Visibility: pedantic

This package does not appear to use a build system helper such as debhelper or cdbs.

It is recommended that packages use such tools as they avoid a large number of common errors and tedious boilerplate as well as permit distribution-wide changes to packages and reduce the "bus factor" & barriers to entry from external contributors.
