There is a problem with dpkg-source enforcing the directory scheme


for *native* debian packages. With that scheme you have to rename the
sourcedirectory for each new version you generate!

I missed that on adduser. Sorry.

I would like to have dpkg-source changed so that it tolerates any
directory name for *native* packages.

debmake used the directory


and I just simply do use the "-version" suffix on the sourcepackage and
ignore the warnings I get when generating a package.
