[Debian-l10n-devel] Bug#1045348: python-l20n: Fails to build source after successful build

Source: python-l20n
Version: 4.0.0~a1-7
Severity: minor

This package fails to build a source package after a successful build
(dpkg-buildpackage ; dpkg-buildpackage -S).

This is probably a clear violation of Debian Policy section 4.9 (clean target),
but this is filed as severity:minor for now, because a discussion on
debian-devel showed that we might want to revisit the requirement of a working
'clean' target.

More information about this class of issues, included common problems and
solutions, is available at
