Thanks, I fixed all those.

commit ab776cbd87880f3712a8f44aa1f2bb630960d0b5
Author: Raphaël Hertzog <hertzog@debian.org>
Date: Fri Apr 29 22:15:17 2011 +0200

deb-src-control(5), start-stop-daemon(8): small improvements

- Clarify that the Architecture field can contain architecture wildcards.
- Clarify when start-stop-daemon can exit 0 when --oknodo is used.
- Drop a sentence that was repeating something already said earlier.

Reported-by: Helge Kreutzmann <debian@helgefjell.de>
