debuild does not create it. It is creating ../package_upstreamversion-debversio
To be more specific, I start with tkman.tar.gz, untar it into the tkman-2.1 dir, create tkman-2.1/debian, have it contains the debian files, modify tkman-2.1/Makefile and run debuild.
As a result I am getting .dsc, .deb, -1.tar.gz and .changes in the parent dir of tkman-2.1. No .orig.tar.gz and no .diff.gz.
Actually, how debuild should determine the diffs? How it can deduce what the original src is?
