I can find no mention of the requirement for an ``orig'' rule in the
package maintainer guidelines.  Is it mentioned anywhere?  If it is a
requirement then ftp.debian.org:/debian/project/standards/Guidelines
and the `hello' example package need updating.

Is this one of those things that has been discussed on the
debian-devel list but never been put anywhere central?
