I would indeed prefer for the pot file to not be updated, but it is
updated directly by DistUtilsExtra when running the install target. I
will submit a bug report to the DistUtilsExtra team to have that
behavior changed. In the meantime I see no option to disable it (that
was actually the first step I checked).
Where should I make a copy of the original .pot file to have it
restored on the next clean?
I am thinking of such an algorithm:
- in clean, check if a copy of the original .pot file exists:
* if it exists, restore it
* if it does not, create a copy to be used for the next run.
Is there a standard location to back files up during the packaging
process? Or is there some kind of variable that would point to the
original tarball, so that I could adapt my current algorithm and not
use "../" ? I would think that such a variable exist, otherwise with
which resource was the automatic patch created? It must have compared
the current source with the original source, right?

OK, I will try to find information about how to do this (in the
resource you pointed me to I didn't find any info related to that).
I will also update my Standards-Version to 3.9.2 as Niels Thykier was
