if you upload a source-only package
e.g. dpkg-buildpackage -S -sa
the file won't be there, e.g. not shown on PTS
because it won't be part of the "clean" debian directory.
it might be installed on the end user system (I didn't check this)
but it needs to be inside the debian directory.
(I might argue about fixing this issue by generating it in dh_auto_clean target)
