Hi, Markus,
Thanks for great link.
But is it really needed? I keep upstream code in my git repo in
"upstream" branch with tags, according to
https://wiki.debian.org/Games/VCS/git. And git-buildpackage
automatically makes orig.tar.gz from it.
Making this rule target will take a some time. I can do that, but I'm
really not sure is it worth it.
