Perhaps he had himself in mind?

What are you doing if there is a packaging issue that has to be fixed in
the debian directory and needs a new Debian version? Will you release a
new upstream version with unchanged program code?
Oh, I feel a bit schizophrenic right now ;)
This was intended.
I guess such issues can be solved, by the following approach:
A patch in downstream, that modifies the script
BALL/debian-upstream/createDebianSource such that it modifies the
corresponding files after copying the debian-upstream directory to debian.
Or am I missing something?
Yes: Just leave out the debian directory from upstream source and
everything is fine.
