20:18 < andrewsh> oh, right, if you want .orig.tar.gz you also do `uscan`
20:18 < juri_> except that isn't working. debuild doesn't like not having a .orig.tar.gz.
20:18 < andrewsh> git clone …
20:18 < andrewsh> uscan --verbose
20:18 < andrewsh> dpkg-buildpackage
20:19 < andrewsh> or if you really want, I can check in tarballs as well using pristine-tar
20:19 < andrewsh> but then you'd need git-buildpackage to build it
20:20 < andrewsh> uscan reads debian/watch and downloads the latest tarball
20:20 < andrewsh> right, there may be one more trouble
20:21 < andrewsh> kiilerix said 0.2.2 is available as zip only (?!)
20:22 < andrewsh> but maybe uscan repacks it, I need to check
20:22 < andrewsh> right, there's a need in --force-download
20:22 < andrewsh> without it uscan thinks there's nothing to be done
20:23 < andrewsh> but when it downloads a zipball, it repacks it as targz automatically
