Re: What to do if the original tarball contains a debian subdirectory
I recommend that you repack your tarball, renaming the "debian"
directory inside it to "debian-upstream" or something similar. And you
should check with upstream if they'd be willing to stop shipping
debian/* in their next releases.
(The recommendation above is my opinion, and there are other DDs who
think different. Me, I believe having a readable diff.gz is motivation
enough as to repack the tarball.)
