But there could still be situations where the directory and the .orig.tar.gz both exist. dpkg-buildpackage could check that the files in the directory and in .orig.tar.gz are identical. Slow, but that's life. Having the directory deleted is a bit surprising, though I haven't lost any data myself. If nothing else, it might be a good idea to add some warnings to the manual. On the other hand, this might be a symptom that the whole build process a bit too complicated, though I can't really see how it should be simplified. -- Please read <http://www.iki.fi/liw/mail-to-lasu.html> before mailing me.
