The enhanced uscan with repack support is indeed the culprit, it uses
tar with --exclude-vcs which causes it to remove the .gitignore in the
upstream tarball, see:


I've disabled the enhanced uscan on my systems, and updated the manual
repack code in debian/get-orig-source to use tar --delete to only delete
the 3 files listed in Files-Excluded.

I'm not sure what's the best way to get the fixed orig.tar.gz into the

I've seen different tarballs for the same upstream version on
snapshot.d.o, but AFAIK ftp-master rejects source uploads when the
checksum and/or size doesn't match the orig.tar.gz previously uploaded.

Maybe just importing the fixed tarball as upstream version 1.11.0+dfsg+1?

Or can the uploaded orig.gz be overriden with a new sourcefull upload?
