That's self-contradictory. And wrong.

That's what I learned from other developers during my first packaging
experience :-), and its difficult to argue if you are a novice ....
I also thought that .orig *is* what it says, but I have the
impression that often people tend to repackage for this or that
reason which could also easily be fixed in debian/rules (just
reading a similar discussion on d-d).

Anyway: I still had the previous version of the developers reference,
and the new chapter 6.7.8 talks exactly about this topic, which should
help clarifying it when there are doubts.
