That happens with a new upstream. I would recommend to filter out the
content of the package itself and ONLY report the debdiff of the debian dir.

If you publish it somewhere, I can have a look, but I also really
recommend you to e-mail the maintainer directly or even better, add this
information to the bug report, so that your progress is logged in a
public place. If the maintainer remains silent for a long time (even
after pinging) additional steps might be appropriate, but you have to
give the maintainer of the package a few chances.

Hmm, I would only do these kind of changes if the maintainer is ok with
that. If people propose debdiff's for my packages, I usually find that
inappropriate if they did not ask beforehand.

I suggest you read the documentation on NMU in the developers reference,
as a lot is valid for this kind of help with maintainers:

We might eventually even make an NMU for dotconf, but only after
following the right procedures.
