I am wondering how cvs-buildpackage fits into this. From what I
understand, cvs-inject checks in the unpacked upstream tarball into
the CVS, puts an upstream_version tag on it. cvs-buildpackage then
creates the orig.tar.gz from the CVS sources. Isn't that a violation
of the pristine sources principle?
