As you say, the primary purpose of debbindiff is to compare two builds of the same source. So why does the path matter at all? I think all that matters is the difference - it's not as if there's a "newer" and "older" version or something like that. In the case where debbindiff is used to compare different sources (as apparently done above), the filename alone contains the necessary information. Best, -Nikolaus -- GPG encrypted emails preferred.
