Re: Bug#723142: RFS: dnt/0.10-1 [ITP]

Thanks to both of you for the review.
As regards the repackaging of the orig.tar tarball, if I have correctly understood, there are two solutions: do it by hand (and document it in README.source) or do it automatically with a get-orig-source target (and that's it). Am I right?
Then, what would you recommand to me?

tarball is bz2 compressed. Yours is gz compressed. I suggest you switch
to xz compression in source/options and for the upstream tarball and
document modifications either in README.source or you might want to
write a get-orig-source target for debian/rules.
The orig.tar should either be exactly the tarball from upstream or
have non-free content removed (or maybe hundreds of MB of embedded
code copies). Just recompressing the tarball with a different
compression format isn't a valid reason to differ from upstream here.
If you want a different compression format, get upstream to switch.
get-orig-source is definitely needed for the non-free/code copies
removal case.

- Some of the fonts are non-free. Those have to be removed in the
   original tarball and not only in the final package.
This would be a reason to modify the upstream tarball, then you can
use xz and add a get-orig-source. Removing the fonts and using xz
should be pushed upstream though.
