Re: source upload?
For dpkg-genchanges and dpkg-buildpackage -b and -B
specify that a binary-only build is taking place.
-b indicates that no source files are to be built
and/or distributed, and -B that no architecture-
independent binary package files are to be dis-
tributed either. -S specifies that only the source
should be uploaded and no binary packages need to
be made. The distinction between -b and -B is only
used by dpkg-buildpackage; dpkg-genchanges just
produces a .changes file for whatever files were
produced by the binary-* target(s) of the package
-b tells dpkg-source to build a source package
(rather than to extract one) - see below.
-S is what you want. This option can be passed to debuild, if you prefer
that over straight dpkg-buildpackage...
