Mainly because for people checking the package before sponsoring it,
because these make it hard to see the real changes in amongst all the
changes to auto-generated files. The sponsor can obviously sort out that
stuff with the sponsee before uploading.

Yes, this is what EmfoxZhou was doing before, running autogen.sh in the
configure-stamp target of debian/rules. My suggestion did not change
that. In this case, the upstream source does not ship with a configure
or Makefile.in files, so the autogen.sh needs to be run at some point.
Upstream should probably be told to use make dist.
