I already had packages that use a helper to generate the version information from the git repository, and therefore need the git metadata to build from source. I could solve this with a "fake" helper that uses debian/changelog instead, but this looks more like a hack than a clean solution. Unfortunately, they did't provide pypi source; otherwise I would have used them. Use case: https://github.com/spacetelescope/pysynphot The originally "relic" package which extracts the info from git: https://github.com/jhunkeler/relic The "fake" relic package is in a Debian patch: https://sources.debian.net/src/pysynphot/0.9.8.5%2Bdfsg-1/debian/patches/Don-t-use-relic-package-for-version-info.patch Best Ole
