Yes. Don't remove the dh-make package, as it keeps the .ex files
in the directory /usr/share/debhelper/dh_make/debian/. Otherwise
you could include them in the debian/ dir, which will not hurt,

Install the package into the archive and wait for bugreports :\
You could also ask the bot "apt" on the openprojects irc network
(channel #debian-bots, /msg apt find /path/to/file) or search the
contents of the latest release on the debian www page. But
downloading the Contents file would be the fastest solution for
checking a couple of files.
"Open Source" programs mean software for which the source code is available
without confidential or trade secret restrictions and for which the source code
and object code are available for distribution without license charges.
