First thing: please provide a download link for the /debian folder you
use when building the package. You said earlier, that you have such a
folder maintained upstream.
Recend Debian packages use source format 3.0 (quilt), that means we
have to provide an orig.tar.<comp> file with the package. The neatest
tool for that is git-buildpackage (a wrapper around dpkg-buildpackage).
The goal is to get the source tree on git.debian.org/git/collab-maint
build with ,,git-buildpackage -uc -us''.
$ git clone git://git.debian.org/collab-maint/kiwix.git
$ git-buildpackage -uc -us
This currently does not work as the upstream tarball contains build cruft...
gbp:error: You have uncommitted changes in your source tree:
gbp:error: # On branch master
# Changes not staged for commit:

no changes added to commit (use "git add" and/or "git commit -a")
gbp:error: Use --git-ignore-new to ignore
Please remove the above named files from upstream SVN. If a Debian
maintainer would not be in contact with upstream (or upstream would
have a high latency) then we could fiddle around that in the package,
but I prefer a clean upstream tarball.

Please provide _your_ /debian folder (not with the upstream tarball,
please, but as a download location).
