Not true. I just downloaded from upstream, started from scratch with
dh_make, etc. and then compared upstream with the newly created
.orig.tar.gz and they matched.

Download a new upstream source.

Execute dh_make.

You'll have to rename the directory that is made from rhinote-0.7 to
rhinote-0.7.0 since that is what you were working with before.

Remove the newly created /debian directory and replace with the one
you've been working with recently with all of the latest changes,

Build using the -sa option of dpkg-buildpackage. That option
includes the .orig.tar.gz file in the build.

Post your new .dsc file for me to grab and I'll rebuild, sign and

From there we should be good.
