Rejected upload -- adacgi


I have had a package (adacgi) rejected, with a message that the .deb has
files with `time stamp too ancient'.

There are some files in the upstream tarball with a 1980 timestamp.  I
have two (broad) questions:

- What is the best way to avoid this timestamp problem?  Simply touch the
  files in DEBIAN/tmp-<packagename> during package build?

- There are now files in /org/ftp.debian.org/incoming/REJECT.  Should I
  bump the debian version from -1 to -2 (since dupload complains that -1
  is already there)?  Should I delete the files in the REJECT directory by
  hand or will they be reaped?  (Don't really want to leave things messy.)
