I have just pushed 

git clone git://git.debian.org/git/pkg-grass/polsarpro
git clone git://git.debian.org/git/pkg-grass/polsarpro-doc 

The first includes stripped sources (version 4.1.5+ds with pristine-tar
branch) as requested.

The latter only includes the debian directory (non-free doc package). 
In this case:
* the get-orig-source produces a stripped orig archive only including
  PDFs
* no "+ds" suffix have been used

It would be nice if you would like to check if repackaging is OK.

Best regards
