To highlight a point that I think is quite important here: adding -i.git/ instead of the default is at least for 3.0 (quilt) packages is not about including the .gitignore. The effect it has (and what I understand the thing you want), is that it will make a build *fail* if there is a .git-ignore file that has a different content than the .orig.tar.* (or is not included in the form of a debian/patches/ file). Because when it is no longer an ignored derivation between unpacked source and current clean working directory, it is by definition an fatal error. (Unless one was to reintroduce the annoying, error-hiding, error-introducing 'generate new patches at build' time behaviour). Bernhard R.
