Re: creating an orig.tar.gz from a CVS

In short, yes, that has been my understanding so far :-) But it's so
simple that adding a "dpkg-cvs-makeorigtgz" script on top of that would
just be confusing for no real benefit.

Just make sure you exclude the CVS directories, either by using "cvs
export" or "tar -x".

And by the way: since the bzip2 and xz compression utilities are now
supported by dak & dpkg, you may use them instead of gzip. The best
compression is usually achieved using xz.
