the way it involved the last tests was, that taffit and I has a wonderfull 
working git-buildpackage, but than we discovered problems, that sbuild is 
different. So the last two versions I only tested sbuild -> *grmpf* Within 
these changes I started to use debian/clean to get rid of files, that are 
copies of other projects. This was the suggested way of taffit to use d/clean 
to remove those copies. But there are two other solutions:
use patches and use the d/repack.sh script. What you think is the right way?

The idea behind was a new tar is repackaged by the d/repack.sh script to get 
rid of files that are not DFSG. And than afterwards we using d/clean to remove 

My workflow is:
dpkg-buildpackage -S
cd ..
sbuild owncloud-client_1.5.2+dfsg-1_amd64.deb

But okay maybe you have to checkout the origon your own:
pristine-tar checkout ../owncloud-client_1.5.2+dfsg.orig.tar.bz2
