In some (simple) cases remove patterns like "*/*/*.bat" might work...

It tells me not only what is removed but also which patterns match no files.
Do you invoke "uscan" with "--verbose" argument? I have 'USCAN_VERBOSE="yes"'
in my "~/.devscripts"...

Yes it can. Just pass "--repack" and "--compression xz" to "uscan". :)

Fair enough, it is up to you after all... Clean-up from script makes sense if
you need to use "find" or change attributes on files...
Files-Excluded good only for removing stuff...

I respectfully disagree. :)
I prefer "get-orig-source" target in "debian/rules" which is documented by
policy, unlike "get-orig-source.sh" script). See

Sorry, no time for this unfortunately... :(
Problems are not stop signs, they are guidelines.
