Should we write a tool that, once and for all, allows to automate the process?
I think workflow should something similar to:
* tool should receive an URI of the orig tarball
* tool should download and unpack the orig tarball
* tool should compare orig tarball with already clean sources
* tool should not consider file differences, just file removals
* tool should generate a policy-compliant get-orig-source target based
on the diff
Also, where to put this tool? Devscripts?
