if I do regenerate the files for shipping (or don’t ship them in the
binary packages), is it ok to leave the upstream-generated files in
the .orig.tar.gz, even though I have no hard guarantee that they are
built from these sources (assuming I have no reason to assume that they
are not), or should every such .orig.tar.gz be re-packaged and stripped
of all generated files?
