Re: Bug#4527: dhcpd does not extract with dpkg-source

Why does dpkg-source not simply change those names so that they work? Who
can remember all these detail. The orig.tar.gz name is already artificial
and not original. The original archive uses capital letters that debian
does not like very much.

And why does it work for the debianized directory?

Next upstream upgrade will correct that problem. Thrash dhcpd_0.5.13.
