How did you generate the diffs? Are they the result of something like
"diff -Nru" on the unpacked source packages? The reason I ask is that
they contain files in ".pc", including an entire copy of the XMLRPC file
affected by the patch, which isn't something I'd expect to find in a
However, running debdiff on the source packages in the archive and those
at the URLs you mentioned above looks clean and okay, so if the above is
indeed the reason for the noise in the diffs then please feel free to go
ahead with the uploads.
