Because I want to be able to create the same tar ball as you (with even
the same md5 / other hashes). Also, until we agree on repacking, I not
only want the same tar ball as you, but also as upstream (if no
repacking is done of course). pristine-tar can make that happen.

Unless I misunderstand you mean, have you found (or other similar
However, I usually just run quilt push -a / quilt new / quilt add /
<change source> / quilt refresh / quilt pop -a and than commit the
patch/series as patch.

But about the repacking, let's agree that we try to follow:

As I understand it (y)our argumentation is that the space saving is
pretty big once we start removing the .o files? If that is true, than
let's repack, until than, let's not. But if we go the repack way, the
+dfsg is used in the Debian archive for package that have been repacked
for "freeness" reasons. If the repack is for other reasons, the suffix
+ds (for Debian Source) is more accepted in the archive. Also we should
add some comments to the d/copyright file. And item number 3: we should
not remove the Makefile(s).
