I've used the debtransform functionality of the buildservice and I'll
like to propose the two attached patches:

1) Debian-based distros require the tarball to be .tar.gz , which is
annoying with cross-distro packaging. This patch adds support for using
.tar.bz2 or .zip and debtransform converts the archive to .tar.gz , in
addition to renaming it as it does now. I've tested this locally with osc
build and it seems to work fine.

this is not true. debian handles .bz2 and even .lzma/.xz. you just need
to specify the right format in the dsc file (format 3)

That seems to fail the reality check. Definitely at least with the build

dpkg-source: error: source package format `3.0' is not supported (Perl module
Dpkg::Source::Package::V3 is required)
