Please don't. Whilst the upgrade checklist says "should use d/watch instead", the actual policy simply removed the 'get-orig-source' paragraph, therefore simply that target is not standardized anymore. And as you probably guess maintainer can put whatever target they want in their d/rules :) I would be fine with such pedantic tag if lintian checked for e.g. get-orig-source targets that only call uscan, those are idiotic for me. -- regards, Mattia Rizzolo GPG Key: 66AE 2B4A FCCF 3F52 DA18 4D18 4B04 3FCD B944 4540 .''`. more about me: https://mapreri.org : :' : Launchpad user: https://launchpad.net/~mapreri `. `'` Debian QA page: https://qa.debian.org/developer.php?login=mattia `-
