Sorry, I have obviously not been clear. I was suggesting a documented option to pbuilder which asks pbuilder to produce dgit-compatible source packages. Now, as you say, pbuilder invokes debuild. Maybe I should be asking for a --dgit option to debuild. Should I CC the debuild (devscripts) maintainers too I wonder... > > Anyway, thanks to everyone for your opinions, whatever they may be. > > Here is pbuilder's maintainer view on this dpkg-source "problem": > pbuilder never calls `dpkg-source -b` itself.

Yes, if I manage to get the pbuilder integration done soon, that is what I will do. But I didn't need your help to figure that out :-). What I was suggesting was that users should, as an alternative, be able to do the build themselves rather than via dgit, and still get the .gitignore included.
