The patch itself is indeed fairly small, but the changes to the package
which was uploaded to p-u-NEW aren't quite so tiny. Specifically, the
diff includes this auto-patch:
patches/debian-changes-1.4.0~git20100726.dfsg.1-2 | 2171 ++++++++++++++++++++++
which includes copies of several auto-generated files, which one
presumes are generated during the build process and as such shouldn't
end up in the source package at all?
