This is misrepresenting. I build my packages under etch, and they're
targeted at etch and work on etch. I build the source packages on
sid. Etch's dpkg-source can unpack them just fine.

Neither Alexander nor Joerg have given me any technical reason for
why they have a problem with it. Alexander pointed out that it's
against the "policy", but failed to show me where the policy (with
which I think he means [0]) talks about source files.

They have failed to produce log files of any problems that this
causes, and I cannot imagine that a few extra fields in the changes
and dsc files cause a problem; if this were the case, then dak is

0. http://backports.org/dokuwiki/doku.php?id=contribute

Instead, Joerg has changed dak to refuse sid source packages.
This is a regression and a way to argue which I don't want to
accept. I have thus asked for my key to be removed and will maintain
my own repository at

  deb http://debian.madduck.net/repo etch-backports main

It will get populated once I return from my current business trip.
