Re: lintian warning native-package-with-dash-version

You might consider using the -v option in dh_make to convert this to a compliant version number. The second -1 will still be there in the final package because that is the debian revision. The cause that lintian has suggested does not seem to be your case as you properly identified the source tarball in the dh_make command.

The dh_make command has nothing to do with the places where
dpkg-buildpackage searches for sources. This is *always*
../${NAME}_${UPSTREAM_VERSION}.orig.tar.gz, no matter how you called


But the thing is that the upstream version is 0.2.2-1 and the name of the .orig.tar.gz created is gnuplotfortran-0.2.2_1.orig.tar.gz which is not exactly {NAME}_{UPSTREAM_VERSION}.orig.tar.gz . I think lintian is looking for something like gnuplotfortran-0.2.2-1.orig.tar.gz and since it is not finding such a file, it is giving the above error. Is there a way to do create gnuplotfortran-0.2.2-1.orig.tar.gz instead of gnuplotfortran-0.2.2_1.orig.tar.gz?
