Well, Wernher Freiherr von Braun was imho just one other brilliant german opportunist, but the quote is still correct ;)

Perhaps he had himself in mind?

But, until I have finished my PHD thesis, I am just the will-less slave of my Ph.D. supervisors ;)


What are you doing if there is a packaging issue that has to be fixed in
the debian directory and needs a new Debian version? Will you release a
new upstream version with unchanged program code?
Oh, I feel a bit schizophrenic right now ;)

This was intended.

I guess such issues can be solved, by the following approach:
A patch in downstream, that modifies the script BALL/debian-upstream/createDebianSource such that it modifies the corresponding files after copying the debian-upstream directory to debian.
Or am I missing something?

Yes: Just leave out the debian directory from upstream source and
everything is fine.

Kind regards
