debcheckout's output lets you know you're getting a git repository. I'm not sure running debuild -S without -i/-I makes this an important bug in debian-installer… > Note that source format 1.0 is only used because one is not specified in > debian/source/format. dpkg-source(1) recommends to specify a version and > the lack of a debian/source/format file may be considered an error in > future. I don't like the idea of unneeded boilerplate in source packages just because dpkg developers want to force v3 onto people so badly. > dpkg-source(1) also recommends choosing a newer format. 3.0 (native) > by default already excludes VCS directories such as .git/ from the > generated tarball, already fixing the issue above. > > 3.0 (native) does however default to .tar.xz compression, rather than > .tar.gz as used at the moment. I'm not sure if that may be an issue for > other tools. Maybe they should be fixed in that case.

In case someone wants to merge this, I would like to see this very carefully reviewed for possible side effects. Getting an error during the next release, or worse a regression only seen afterwards, would really be annoying. KiBi.
