Could you please provide the name of the policy? I've just read it, and I haven't found one. I found: - Generated files, which is fine, as long as there's corresponding original form - Source missing, which is fine too, because it's not missing, it's in package I got interested in this, as I want to use a tool, which isn't packaged in debian. And upstream considers it to be a good idea to include tool's sources into project, where it's used. I like more clean solution - get the tool packaged into debian, then use the tool in my project.
