Thanks Russ for the explanation.
Andreas, I had the same problem with the bedtools package, and resorted to the
following until upstream ensured that __MACOSX directories are absent.
uscan --no-symlink --force-download --download-version $(DEB_UPSTREAM_VERSION)
zcat ../BEDTools.v$(DEB_UPSTREAM_VERSION).tar.gz \
| tar --wildcards \
--delete '*/._*' \
--delete '*/*DS_Store' \
| xz \
If you are lucky, the upstream of SAINT will also agree to proofcheck his
released tarballs against such files. Often they are not packaged in purpose
but only by accident.
