OK, let's say I rename the package to 'somebird' and want to produce a good
package for debian. Should I use a patched orig.tar.gz or is it ok to distribute
the source as provided by upstream (of course without the trademarked icons) and
patch the rest (e.g. thunderbird mozilla) during build?
My preference (from a technical point of view) is to distribute the unmodified
upstream tarball and patch it during build. It is easier to maintain ;)
