On a general note (I haven't checked if this applies to erlang or not):
Please, if you repack, include the exact instructions for repacking in
debian/copyright; ideally down to something you could cut-and-paste into a
shell. Even though the resulting tarball might not be identical, it makes for
much easier NMUing _and_ upstream intactness checking.
