Hmm.  There is something weird with the pristine-tar data.

Did you use git-import-orig or something custom?

I first used git-import-orig, but it failed, since I had not set up my gitconfig with my correct user.name and user.email. It failed with a lot of errors. Afterwhile, I tried to fix everything up manually... I signed and did some commits, then I merged upstream into master.

Are you sure you did not rename a bzip2 tarball or something?

The upstream tarball is a .tar.gz, not a bz2. I see there are two tarballs in the pristine-tar branch. I guess I should remove the old one?

Oh - maybe it is simply that you need to do a "push --tags".

Hmm, yes. I did that.

This caused me some headaches. It seems to be that git-buildpackage should have kept going, or stopped with warnings. Maybe it did: I am still new to git.

There is definitely something wrong with the tagging (if not more): Here's what I get with "git tag":


What do you get with same command?

If you also get those same tags, then your git-import-orig is incomplete.

Try simply do the git-import-orig again on top of the other - that will cause a bit of commit noise but shouldn't mess up the packaging (but hopefully fix).

You can also try yourself in a different directory to do the following and verify that it works to build the package from that:

  gbp-clone git.debian.org:/git/pkg-multimedia/scenic

Kind regards,
