I object to thisScripsit firstname.lastname@example.org (A Mennucc)Solution: the DeCSS is deleted from the package proposed for Debian (for this reason, I upload mplayer as a native package);That is not a valid reason to pretend it is a native package. The correct thing to do is to create a new .orig.tar.gz with the offending files removed from it, but keep the rest of the .orig.tar.gz unchanged. Debian changes and package infrastructure should still go in a .diff.gz, and the package version should consist of an upstream version with a separate Debian revision.
a file mplayer....orig.tar.gz is, as the name says, the original distributed source
distributing my modified tar.gz disguising it as the upstream original one would be cause of confusion
