Package: src:console-setup version; 1.128 user: firstname.lastname@example.org usertags: source-is-missing severity: serious X-Debbugs-CC: email@example.com Hi, Your package seems to include some files that lack sources in prefered forms of modification: Keyboard/locale/lib/common/xomGeneric.so.2 Keyboard/locale/lib/common/xlocale.so.2 Keyboard/locale/lib/common/xlibi18n.so.2 Keyboard/locale/lib/common/xlcUTF8Load.so.2 Keyboard/locale/lib/common/xlcDef.so.2 Keyboard/locale/lib/common/ximcp.so.2 According to Debian Free Software Guidelines  (DFSG) #2: "The program must include source code, and must allow distribution in source code as well as compiled form.". This could also constitute a license violation for some copyleft licenses such as the GNU GPL. In order to solve this problem, you could: 1. repack the origin tarball adding the missing source to it. 2 add the source files to "debian/missing-sources" directory Both way satisfies the requirement that we ship the source. Second option might be preferable due to the following reasons : - Upstream can do it too and you could even supply a patch to them, thus full filling our social contract , see particularly §2. - If source and non-source are in different locations, ftpmasters may miss the source and (needlessly) reject the package. - The source isn't duplicated in every .diff.gz/.debian.tar.* (though this only really matters for larger sources). You could also ask firstname.lastname@example.org or #debian-qa for more guidance.  https://www.debian.org/social_contract.en.html#guidelines  https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=736873#8  https://www.debian.org/social_contract
