IIRC, last time I tried multiple tarballs, I got stuck with
pristine-tar. Not sure, if I didn't find out how to commit or
if the problem was with checkout, though.

Do you happen to know, if this is an issue?

PS: Just for the record: I'm always(?) using upstream sources
from git, not PyPi, because the latter typically are missing
unit tests, which we want to run in Debian.
