I'm not really sure, if the missing .orig.tar.gz file is sufficient
to decide, if the package maintainer is the author or not.  All my
packages have orig.tar.gz files because I offer them also via ftp.

where I wrote each single line of code.  May be
where I'm responsible for the overworked release 2.0 as co-author.
All these packages are *not very* importand for a working Linux
system, but may show the fact that authors could ship their own source
also as .orig.tar.gz.

Kind regards
