I cannot make any promises, but at the moment I cannot think of a reason
that the .orig.tar.gz I'm currently using would change.

Oops.  I just realized why I'm going to have to go back on something I
told Adam Heath.  I told him I'd upload -0pre1v2 to experimental.

I'm not going to do that now.  I'm not going to do it until I have much
more confidence that I won't have to change the .orig.tar.gz, and at
that point I'll probably be confident enough just to dump the thing in
unstable.

If you want to know my reasoning for the above, take a very, very deep
breath, put on hip boots, and read

http://lists.debian.org/debian-ctte/2001/debian-ctte-200108/msg00000.html

and all the follow-ups.

(You'll note that the archive admins never did document anything, as
requested by the Technical Committee.)
