as I told you in my previous mail, I am going to include a 
get-orig-source rule in the ffmpeg package. Of course I wanted to test 
this rule and tried to reproduce the Debian tarball by exporting 
ffmpeg SVN trunk of 20070307 (as explained in 

Please reproduce the following steps:
$ apt-get source ffmpeg-free
$ svn export -r {20070307} svn://svn.mplayerhq.hu/ffmpeg/trunk 
$ diff -Naru ffmpeg-free-0.cvs20070307/ ffmpeg-of-20070307/

Yes, the diff is >900kB! No, this is not due to the added debian/ 
directory and also not due to the stripped Debian tarball.

However, I found it impossible to reproduce the Debian ffmpeg tarball 
by exporting ffmpeg SVN trunk of the given date.

Can you please explain to me if I missed anything?


PS: Regarding my previous mail, may I assume silence==consence and 
commit my changes on monday?
