Did 1st version of debian package steptalk violate policy 5.6.20?


Debian package steptalk is wrongly shipped as a native debian

The first and second versions of debian package steptalk didn't
provide a .orig.tar.gz file. Is steptalk in violation of the last
paragraph of policy 5.6.20 [0]?

  If a new Debian revision of a package is being shipped and no new
  original source archive is being distributed the .dsc must still
  contain the Files field entry for the original source archive
  package-upstream-version.orig.tar.gz, but the .changes file should
  leave it out. In this case the original source archive on the
  distribution site must match exactly, byte-for-byte, the original
  source archive which was used to generate the .dsc file and diff
  which are being uploaded.
