That's every source/format 3.0 (quilt) package. It would do well for the l10n scripts to take that into account. > It would help a lot if the upstream tarball had no debian/ directory > or, at least, no debian/templates and debian/po/ files and > directories. It would. I can ask the upstream to do that but it's not something any maintainer has direct control over, and this isn't (IMHO) a good reason for repackaging upstream tarballs. Not with 3.0 (quilt) taking care of the situation. > Anyway, I blacklisted crossfire from the status pages which should > become effective....once the "gen-material" script works again as > expected (it is actually broken for a not-yet-know reason for about 10 > days). Thank you. This should take care crossfire's case, but I think this situation points to a more generic solution and I'm retitling the bug accordingly.
