Some of the recent addons from AMO have contained a META-INF directory with a
binary mozilla.rsa file in it, as well as a few other text files. The binary
file is causing dpkg-source to complain. I could override it in
debian/source/include-binaries but not sure if that is "best practise". The
other option is to add it to Files-Excluded: in debian/copyright. I think it
isn't included in the final binary .deb packages anyways.
I am not sure what mozilla.rsa contains (I guess a signature, but of what?),
and we need to know this to figure out an answer to the above question. I will
research this myself over the next few days if no-one answers, but I thought
someone here might have already done this, and could save me that effort.
