Debian policy describes all the required targets and some optional

man dpkg-source

   Format: 3.0 (quilt)
       A source package in this format contains at least an  original  tarball
       (.orig.tar.ext  where ext can be gz, bz2 and lzma) and a debian tarball
       (.debian.tar.ext). It can also  contain  additional  original  tarballs
       (.orig-component.tar.ext).   component  can  only  contain alphanumeric
       characters and dashes ("-").

Behold the future is, aeh, soon.
