I would not suggest anybody to do it this way and I explicitely enforce
sponsees to add the "Files: debian/*" section even if they are upstream
just to make things very explicite and clear. But if I have nothing
explicite I need to assume something and finally a definition
does also match
so what else should it mean if somebody leaves out the latter? Perhaps
we should state this explicitely at
to give people a warning about this?
