At the moment, it's a sequence of four ASCII characters without any
particular meaning.  Many maintainers use repackaged sources because
they want to include multiple tarballs in their source packages, even
though there's no need to do this as far as the DFSG are concerned.
On the other end are Debian-specific packages for which there is no
real upstream and which were made non-native packages nevertheless.
