Is working with shell scripts going to be a problem? That's what I was
I find it easier to write shell scripts for the get-orig-source functionality
for some packages. Look at warsow's and ogre's get-orig-source scripts.
And before anyone mentions that they don't really follow the functionality
that's stated in policy, I already know. I do plan on fixing this.
