Dear Fred,

the Dpkg source format version 1.0 does not support other files than
debian/rules to be executable, so I recommend that unless strictly needed, you
do not rely on files in debian/ to be executable, especially if you suspect
that your package might be backported by users on local installations that are
too old for supporting the 3.0 (quilt) format.

Have a nice day,
