But in such a case the .orig.tar.gz file will not be the same as the
tarball on upstream author's site. Is this correct? In fact, the binary
package will not change, because the only difference between those two
original tarballs is:

magic@semela(pts/6):~/tmp$ LC_ALL=C diff -ru smb-network-1.10{-old,}/
Only in smb-network-1.10/: GPL
Only in smb-network-1.10-old/smbicons: .xvpics

And I did not include the .xvpics file in the package, of course, and
I will not include the GPL file either, because GPL is already in
/usr/share/common-licenses/GPL on Debian systems. So if it is correct
.orig.tar.gz and the upstream tarball to differ, I do not need to make new
revision of the package at all. Am I right?
