Is "all of the files (.orig.tar.gz, diff, changes, dsc, and binary
package(s)) relating to your package" not strong enough?  I would have
thought it would have been clear enough.  Just writing "source package"
would be less informative, IMHO.  This way, at least, there's half a chance
that people will notice that they're missing some files...

If you'd like to suggest a better wording for the paragraph, I'd be happy to
include it.  I just can't think of a clearer way to express it.
