The warning is because your download URL is http, which is insecure against
man-in-the-middle attacks.  Running 'uscan' gives output showing you are
redirected to https, so it seems using an https url is possible.  But this
is only a warning and not a blocker for inclusion in Ubuntu.

Thanks, I have sponsored the package now and it has been accepted into
kinetic-proposed.

Note that debian/changelog of your bzr branch showed it was targeting focal
with the upload, so I had to change this.
